A hub for creativity
McColl Center is a nationally acclaimed artist residency and contemporary arts hub in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. We are where artists and people who care about them converge, connect, and thrive. As a hub for creativity and a catalyst for growth, McColl Center is committed to putting artists first, supporting them throughout their careers with subsidized artist studios, access to modern equipment and tools, entrepreneurship programs, and 5,000 SF of gallery space to exhibit and sell work.
Creativity Camp is a series of week-long, half-day art camps designed for young artists ages 7-16 to spark imagination, encourage self-discovery, and make lifelong connections to many expressions of art.
