Online Registration Opens Monday, Faculty Exhibition, Amulets this Weekend

Hello GAC Students!

Thank you for helping us to have successful Fall and Winter semesters. We are extremely grateful for your respect of our safety protocols that allow us to remain open for our community through these most difficult past months.

For the Spring, we continue our hybrid program (on-campus and online), with the same safety protocols in place. We look forward to the time when social distancing guidelines might be relaxed and we can accommodate a greater number of students. However, at this time, class sizes continue to be limited. 

Because our staffing is for the most part remote, registration must be completed online. We’re just finishing the catalog PDF and will post it to the website next week. For now you can see all of the classes here.

Registration for the Spring semester opens Monday, February 22 at 10:00 am. Since limited-sized classes fill quickly, we recommend you register as early as possible for the best chance of securing a spot in the class of your choice. 

Thank you for all of your participation and your support of GAC, and for helping us to serve our mission in the arts. 


Faculty Exhibition Now Open
This exhibition shares how GAC instructors have engaged with their art to help them “keep on” during this time of the pandemic, or even how they have struggled, or changed creatively.
