Genesee County Affiliate

MiAA Genesee County Affiliate Logo

The MiAA Genesee Country affiliate provides a variety of services within the county. The committee works with the home office to find support for and service our Club Create Swartz Creek and our artist-in-residence programs for special education students in the Genesee ISD center-based programs. The committee also mounts 4 local festivals for school-aged students, and identifies and trains artists to work in these programs.

Kathy Cole, a retired employee of Genesee ISD is the creator of MiAA’s Club Create program. After reuniting with graduated students at a funeral of one of their former classmates, Ms. Cole realized that her former students could really benefit from the social and creative engagement of an adult arts club. With support from a few parents and the Genesee County affiliate, she successfully formed our first Club Create chapter in Swartz Creek.
