Community Outreach

The Hudgens Center is proud to support the communities of Gwinnett. By forming innovative partnerships with public schools, the public library system, and other nonprofits in the area, we can now provide art education and creative outlets for the underserved students and residents in our county.

Below are just a few of the ways we get involved.
