Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

GCCA's mission is driven by the following strategic goals:
1) Ignite creativity and empathy in our community by celebrating the diversity of artistic voices and building bridges to understanding
2) Strengthen our platform, visibility, and outreach to generate engagement, remove barriers, and expand access
3) Generate opportunities for artists and art enthusiasts across disciplines to learn, network, and collaborate
4) Build pathways for artists that nurture their potential and foster career mobility

Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2015 by a dedicated group of artists, arts advocates, and community leaders. GCCA is the only art center of its kind in the Greenville area specializing in hands-on visual arts instruction, offering art classes for all skill levels, affordable artist studios and resources, free public exhibitions, and outreach programs for children and young emerging artists. Through a combination of on-site and community activities, neighborhood partnerships, and educational and exhibition opportunities for artists at all stages of their careers, GCCA works to thoughtfully use its resources and relationships to uplift local artists and create accessible pathways to arts engagement.
