Welcome to the Guelph Creative Arts Website

Guelph Creative Arts Association (GCAA) is a welcoming visual arts organization, open to everyone practicing or interested in the arts in Guelph and surrounding areas.

Daisy.pngSome of our members are interested onlookers and "appreciators." Others are practicing artists working in a variety of materials and techniques. Oils, watercolour, acrylics, assorted drawing methods, print making and film are some of the media used in two-dimensional art, as well as digital imaging and computer graphics. Textiles, metal, clay, glass, wood etc. may become three-dimensional tactile items of decoration and/or utility. We identify and welcome all categories of artists and artisans, whether professional or amateur, and encourage participation for the enjoyment of both creators and the community.
