Review for Greater Flint Arts Council, Flint, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization provides a great presence in the center of town for both artists and those who enjoy art. I enjoy the inclusive way the staff welcome artists and give them opportunities to share their work both in the monthly art displays and at various local sites. I participated in several small classes at the center that widened my experience and enriched my life. Thanks, GFAC, for continuing to shine and encourage us all. If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could provide more classes, extend its services, and expand art activities with children and adults. In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are a lack of funding and of public awareness of all they provide. One thing I'd also say is that being downtown is great, but some who might come to evening functions are afraid to go into the area after dark.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the quality of its art displays and its encouragement of the arts in the Flint community, including its informative website.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the opportunity for others to try new art forms with small classes and demonstrations of new techniques.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The warmth and encouragement of the staff, especially Kathy.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very encouraging and welcoming.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand art experiences in the community.

Ways to make it better...

more of the special functions were during the daytime. It is difficult for me to go downtown in the evening.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funds and shortage of volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am grateful for the work this organization does to keep the joy of viewing and creating art alive in our community.
