Art is a wonderful way to help build and strengthen our communities. It helps to engage, inspire, and encourage us to reach out and connect with each other, express our creative voice and create shared experiences while working together toward meaningful outcomes.
It’s no coincidence the South Cobb Arts Alliance’s mission begins with to build our community and ends with to engage the community in the recognition and support of the area’s cultural arts and historic preservation.
As the community grew, so did SCAA’s commitment to all of you, our members, our artists, our educators and our volunteers. As SCAA plans towards its 50th year, we hope you will join us to inspire the community with events and more arts activities.
Keep current with our updated events calendar for activities. Our venues or activities may change from time to time, but our comittment to the community is as strong as ever. SCAA will continue to bring hallmark art activities to create new reasons for you to engage and support SCAA art events such as:
• Annual National Juried Exhibit competition- New location.
• Behind-the-scenes meet & greet w/local artists.
• Workshops, e.g., art of business, how to exhibit art, painting techniques, photography, and crafts.
• Live Performances up close and personal to blend with Art.
• Art Educators and Student Art Exhibits
• Art in public places.
• Solo SCAA Artist Exhibits.
• Receptions and Hospitality events.
• Annual Christmas House Arts and Crafts Show- a juried Holiday Shopping with your favorite Artists and Crafters- New location.
• Community Projects.
• New- The Children’s Project: SCAA Color Pop coloring book for children in hospitals.
• Artist Directory to promote local artists.
We salute our community with events designed to welcome and promote community engagement. We salute SCAA volunteers who support and work to reconnect artists, art educators, families, businesses, and other members of the community in the focus on the arts.
In the end, events do not alone define a community. The community and volunteers make the events special.
As an all volunteer supported organization, SCAA’s volunteers are how events are planned and accomplished…because our volunteers are the heart of the organization. Join us as a member, volunteer, donor to inspire the community.
Since 1972, South Cobb Arts Alliance has presented our community with hallmark events celebrating the Arts, opening doors to engage the community in recognition and support of Arts.
For those of you who have been familiar with us (for almost 50 years), you know that the best way to get the most detailed and up to date SCAA information is by visiting our website or to LIKE us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to know what is happening in the SCAA Community. We have been busily working behind the scenes to develop ways for more outreach activities and opportunities for you, our artists, our art educators and students, and the community as a whole.
In 2016, SCAA was awarded a National Endowment of the Arts grant, and the organization returned to its roots, i.e., community outreach, engagement with local school art programs, conducting artist exhibits and juried arts events, having students perform at events, and contributing in a variety of ways to art educators and community programs.
Through SCAA’s upcoming plans, we hope to not only entertain and inform, but also to connect you with our artistic journey regarding current SCAA workshops, art classes and favorite events. Additionally, SCAA continues local and national exhibits, its annual Christmas House Arts and Crafts Show, community projects, and public art with Live Performances.
Arts are the heart of the South Cobb Arts Alliance. Help empower our Community Outreach vision by moving forward to listen, create, and inspire by engaging every person, one event at a time.
