The 29 Palms Creative Center & Gallery was born
in the fall of 2003, when proprietress, artist &
educator, Gretchen Grunt, made her life long dream
come true. The Creative Center is open to the public
everyday of the week from 10am to 6pm, Sundays
until 3pm, & by appointment for art after dark.
The art gallery exhibits local talents with jewelry, fabric
art, pottery, stained glass, desert nuances & the
recent art created by the studio artists
who work on the premises.

Gretchen Grunt, Doug Whitfield & guest artists offer art
classes & activities directly out of their studios for the
local or traveling art adventurer. Over the last decade,
amazing children, adults & groups of all sorts have
participated in a wide range of art making activities.
Choose from a wide selection of ready to paint cups,
plates, tiles & tons of figurines. Painting pottery is a
great activity for birthday parties at any age!

Looking for a uniquely inspiring place to celebrate a
birthday party or girls night out?
The Creative Center enjoys hosting art parties
for any occasion. Bring Food & libations,
while we provide the tables, chairs & the art
activity for everybody. Plan an art party
with your host, Gretchen Grunt
at 760 361-1805.

"Under the shadow of the northern hills of Joshua Tree National Park, nestled amidst the benign palm trees of the Oasis of Mara, proprietress Gretchen Grunt has set up a multi-purpose gallery, shop, studio complex, showroom, and best of all, classroom, for the art-minded {adventurer}."
-Mark Hornish, LA Deserts Travel Examiner

In collaboration with the 29 Palms Inn:
"The Creative Center is founded on
the premise that the creative spirit is
an integral part of our spiritual and
social paths in life. A loving and non-
judgmental art studio environment
is one of our primary goals."
