Upcoming GAC Events

MLK Day Event Next Monday!

Take Part in Art!

Join the Greenville Arts Council and Greenville Renaissance Scholars for an afternoon of open artwork at the E.E. Bass Cultural Arts Center on January 17th from 1-3pm ! All participants will have a chance to work in an art studio setting with access to a variety of art materials and mediums. Middle School aged students will also have an opportunity to create artwork inspired by music and Black History Month to enter into a show hosted by the B.B. King Museum in February.

This event is open to all ages and there will be adult supervision for young children interested in attending. There is no cost to participate, however we are requesting that participants bring an art supply donation to give back to our public schools and arts partnership programs to enhance the classrooms of Western Line and Greenville Public School Districts as members of the Greenville Arts Partnership.

Keep the Arts Alive School Supply Drive

The 2010 Needs Assessments of our GAP schools showed a common theme: we teacher need more resources! There are several websites that have come into existence over the years specifically to assist with enhancing our nations class rooms by setting up a secure donation site where they can chose specific items or projects to fund. A list of online resources is available on this page.
For Martin Luther King Day of Service, the Greenville Arts Council and Greenville Renaissance Scholars are collecting art supplies until Monday, January 17th to enhance the classrooms of Western Line and Greenville Public School Districts as members of the Greenville Arts Partnership.

In-kind donation forms will be available to people who make donations of the art supplies that are essential for our educators to successfully integrate the arts into their classrooms. Donations can be dropped off to the Greenville Arts Council office between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday-Friday. If your classroom would like to receive specific items from the supply drive, please contact Megan Hines at  662-332-2246.
