PAINT CREEK CENTER FOR THE ARTS wrote -
Support Paint Creek Center for the Arts in our quest to win the Art Van Charity Challenge. We are a small non-profit organization in the heart of Rochester that provides the local community with a portal for creativity, inspiration and imagination.
We work year-round to bring the nationallly ranked Art & Apples Festival® to the community, a full spectrum of art class (over 50 classes per term), a Michigan artist art market, and art exhibitions featuring the work of local emerging and established artists.
Why are we raising money and how will it be used?
We would like to enhance our current program offerings to include art therapy classes for children and adults with autism and military veterans suffering from PTS. Exisitng studio classroom spaces will need to be adapted so we can offer this programming.
Additionally, PCCA would like to improve handicap accessiblity into our historical building constructed in 1880. As you can imagine, repairs and updates are necessary and having only 7 on-street parking spots in front of the building poses a challenge. See the list of desired building/property updates below:
-Construct parking lot on owned land (12 dedicated spaces)
-Improve handicap accessibility by installing path from parking lot to the existing handicap ramp
