SCG Artist in Residence & Teaching Program 2023

Prospectus

Placer Community Foundation (PCF) is a nonprofit public benefit corporation which manages the Susan Cooley Gilliom Artist in Residence & Teaching Program (SCG ART Program).  In partnership with PCF the program is housed through Blue Line Arts in Roseville, CA.

The SCG ART program brings established artists to Placer County for the purpose of teaching and sharing their artistic talents and experience to the greater community. The program was lovingly established at PCF in memory of a local artist, Susan Cooley Gilliom, by her family.  Both Susan and her mother took part in workshops from established and talented artists.  They appreciated the perspective and expertise it offered their own work and wanted similar opportunities afforded to local artists, art students, art educators and art enthusiasts in Susan’s hometown and county.
