GMA Outreach Programs
The GMA is so proud about how our outreach program’s collaborative quilt project turned out this year! Last summer, outreach instructors Marie Hamra and Gail Ritzer planned a visual arts unit that integrates poetry. Using Maya Angelou’s 1993 Presidential Inaugural Poem, students created a visual interpretation of Angelou’s poem, which are currently on display at the GMA center for art education.

Participants in GMA Outreach programs are Senior Centers of the Pitt Council on Aging (Ayden, Bethel, Farmville, Fountain, Greenville, and Grifton centers) and students from the Jarvis Church unit of the Boys and Girls Club.
The Greenville Museum of Art would like to thank the North Carolina and Pitt County Arts Council and their Grassroots Grant program for assisting with funding this program.
The Greenville Museum of Art provides arts education classes within underserved areas of our community, including the Little Willie Center, Operation Sunshine, The Boys and Girls Club, and various Council on Aging Centers.
