Take a look at our rendering for our exterior renovations coming soon!

Magnolia Arts Center has consistently fulfilled its mission. And for eight of those years, this was accomplished without a place to call their own.

For example, MAC events have taken place at The Music Academy, Winslow’s, and Tipsy Teapot, among others. And now MAC can truly say, “There’s no place like home!” The first season at the former Teen Center, located at Greenville Boulevard and East 14 th Street, during 2014 was successful with a growing number of performances, events, and patrons. By any objective measure, MAC is on a roll with providing memorable experiences to our local community!

MAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization being operated 100% by volunteers, with no paid employees. Over 100 volunteers assist annually to produce quality shows, manage expenses, as well as maintain and clean the building. The revenue received from annual donors, concessions, ticket
sales, and rentals is used towards ongoing needs such as show productions, utilities and basic repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Lush Brush

Lush Brush Generic New Web Site Banner

July  21 & 22 – 7:30pm

we will be painting this:


  • Lush Brush at Magnolia Arts Center – FAQ – How is Lush Brush unique?There are three main reasons Lush Brush is a unique experience for this region.
    • ART 4 ARTS! All the money raised goes back into community arts through the Magnolia Arts Center – not someone’s pocket.  We are a 100% volunteer organization.  So, all the money left over after the expenses of the class, goes right back to help us have a greater impact in the local community.
    • Your wine is included in the price of the ticket. One bottle per ticket. Magnolia Arts Center reserves the right to refuse beverages to any individuals for any reason.
    • The projects completed in this class are unique to the Magnolia Arts Center. Artists specifically design projects for The Magnolia Arts Center that are tied into the upcoming plays and community happenings.


What does my ticket price include?

Your ticket price includes admission to the instructor led class, all supplies necessary to complete the project, a bottle of wine (your choice from the options we provide), and tons of fun.

Why a painting party at Magnolia Arts Center, a performing arts facility?

Art is art no matter the medium.  Whether reading poetry, dancing, performing, or painting, we believe that the arts can help fund the arts in a symbiotic manner.  The Magnolia Arts Center is a hub for local artists of ALL mediums and creative backgrounds to come together to propel a creative culture within the Greenville community in new and innovative ways of perceiving the world around us.

Do I need to have painting experience?

No experience necessary.  We have a professional artist with three and a half years of creative instructional experience.  Painting along with the class, the artist will guide you through every brush stroke, by taking a step-by-step approach to instruction.  Just come with a willing attitude and be ready to have fun and create.

Do I need to know how to draw?/How do you expect me to paint when I can’t draw a stick figure?

Drawing skills will make no difference in the success of your painting.  As the title of the event suggests, we will solely use a paintbrush to express ourselves.  To maximize the fun you will have during the class, advance paintings will include basic line drawings as a tool to guide you.

Where are you located?

The Magnolia Arts Center is located at 1703 East 14th Street in Greenville at the former Teen Center next to the Perkins Athletic Complex.  We recommend that you plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of class to get settled.  Class will always start promptly.

What do I need to bring?

We provide everything you need to enjoy this unique experience.  However, if you have a favorite wine glass or favorite apron, feel free to bring them.

Can I bring my own drinks/food?

Due to ABC laws, we cannot allow you to bring outside beverages of any kind into our space.  Additional beverages will be available for sale during the class (beer, wine, soda and water).  Also, concession items will also be available for purchase during the class.

How long does the class last?

We plan each class to last approximately 2 relaxing hours.  Sometimes, depending on the project, the class can go a little longer.  However, we do try to keep the class within the two hour time frame.  Please plan to show up at least 15 minutes prior to the start of class to pick your station and get settled.  We use acrylic paint, a painting medium that dries quickly so as to not ruin the interior of your vehicle.

Will the paint stain my clothes?

We will provide aprons for your use during the class.  If you accidentally get paint on your clothes, and the paint is still wet, the paint can easily be washed out with soap and water.  Once the paint dries, it can be difficult to remove from clothing so it is best to catch the paint while it is still wet.

I do not drink wine – can I still participate?

Absolutely!  We cannot offer different pricing for individuals who choose the “non-wine” option.  Additional beverages will be available for sale during the class (beer, soda and water).  Also, you can take the bottle of wine with you to give to a friend as a gift.  However, we can ensure you will have just as much fun with or without the wine.

I am under 21 – can I still participate?

Absolutely!  We cannot offer different pricing for individuals who are underage.  We take our responsibility as a community organization VERY SERIOUSLY.  Individuals 18 years of age or under must be accompanied by a paying adult.  Any attempt by any individual to promote or participate in underage drinking at Magnolia Arts Center will be refused service and immediately reported to the authorities.  However, we can ensure you will have just as much fun without breaking the law.

Can I book a private Lush Brush party?

Absolutely!  Based on artists availability, private parties for any age group (minimum of 15 guests/maximum of 30 guests) are available and encouraged.  Please email us at with the specifics (date/time, number of participants, and age of participants) for private Lush Brush event specifics.  The sooner you contact us, the more likely we can accommodate your needs.  No better way to celebrate with a creative event that raises funds for community arts.  Prices vary based on age of participants and scope of the event.
