We consider the star formation properties of dwarf galaxies in the Cen A group observed within our HST/ACS projects number 9771 and 10235. We model color-magnitude diagrams of the galaxies under consideration and measure star formation rate and metallicity dependence on time. We study the environmental dependence of the galaxy evolution and probable origin of the dwarf galaxies in the group.
