Welcome To



$MART Art is a new GCAC initiative. We will host a series of classes, events, and workshops accessible to anyone with an interested in visual arts, performing arts, literary arts and culinary arts.


GCAC Artists will teach workshops that will be hosted by GCAC. You can view and sign up for upcoming classes right on this page.


The GCAC $MART ART spaces are located adjacent to the Gallery Shop. However, some classes may be given at other Garrett County locations and some may be virtual.
