Groups that
Meet at the CAC

We have several fun, entertaining, and educational groups that meet at the CAC.

Come try them out–you may find a perfect fit for you!

*Regularly scheduled meetings are listed below, but some groups may not meet every month-please contact the group of your interest to verify.

COLUMBUS COMMUNITY THEATRE

Tired of your stage being your bathroom mirror? Join Columbus Community Theatre, a community of artists who bring art to life onstage. There is room for the animated kid…the overdramatic senior…. and everyone in between including the shy crafter-artist-carpenter who wouldn’t be caught dead on a stage! Click your heels and make your “Wizard of Oz” dream come true with CCT.
 

Open to anyone interested in getting into a local theater group. CCT charges no dues for membership. Meetings are held every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November) on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm.

THE GATHERING OF ARTISTS

The Gathering of Artists is a place to discuss, share, and create art in Columbus, Mississippi.
 
Open to artists of all mediums. Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 1:30 pm.
*December meeting has been canceled*

POSSUM TOWN QUILTERS

Interested in quilts? Whether you are a beginning quilter or an expert artist, a collector or a creator, or you simply want to learn more, we invite you to join the Possum Town Quilters! Monthly meetings may include technique demonstrations, show & tell, classes, charity projects, and/or related presentations from guest speakers. Most meetings are followed by lunch and “sit and sew,” a time for working on guild quilts or your own projects. 

Meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9:30 am.

SUZUKI STRINGS PROGRAM

The Columbus Suzuki String Program, supported in part, by the CAC, was founded in 1980 by Mrs. Trudy Gildea. They offer private lessons in violin, viola, and cello along with group lessons and have a String Orchestra and Advanced Ensemble. Instruction is open to all ages. The program’s mission is to create opportunities for young people to appreciate and pursue excellence in music by fostering, developing and promoting the talent of young musicians. 

Lessons are held weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at various times.

COLUMBUS WRITERS’ GROUP

Whether your goal is to write the great American novel or simply to learn how to express yourself more proficiently through the medium of writing, the Columbus WritersGroup is a place where even the newest beginner will feel welcomed and valued. Come and  share your poetry, short stories, or brief excerpts from your novels/memoirs; come ready to ask questions and to discuss your ideas, especially those that may inspire your fellow writers to improve their writing skills.

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 6 pm.
