The Center

The Center is a joint effort of Allied Arts Association of Cambria and Coast Unified School District. Together they converted the auditorium/gymnasium of the Old Grammar School into the Theatre at the Cambria Center for the Arts. The hallways have become the CCA Gallery.

An association of artists of every genre, art lovers, patrons and volunteers, our mission is to foster, encourage and promote the visual and performance arts. Allied Arts’ members are interested in the vitality of the arts in our lives and in our community. Although many of our members have extraordinary artistic talent, some find satisfaction in supporting the arts by their contributions to scholarship funds and the various creative projects sponsored by Allied Arts. We all share a common interest and appreciation of the arts.

We foster, encourage and promote the arts by providing an Artreach program in the schools, scholarships in music and dance, art competitions, art workshops, and we display the works of member artists at the Cambria Center for the Arts (CCA) located in the Coast Unified School District building in Cambria.

Every year you find Allied Arts in the forefront of creative activities. To name a few, we sponsor the Silent Auction at the Art and Wine Festival, Petals and Palettes (an art and garden show), the 927 Show, theater productions and a variety of instructional programs and workshops throughout the year.
