Your support means more now than ever as we reopen our doors and serve our students and visitors with all the benefits of the arts during these most challenging times.

Thanks to our supporters, GAC provided free, virtual offering this spring, then a full summer of online classes, and even a virtual Craft Expo. Now we’re more ready-than-ever to benefit our community.

Going forward, you can make a significant impact on our GAC community during this time of reduced revenue from tuition and cancelled fundraising events. You can further bridge our financial gap and help us continue to provide programming.
