ABOUT US

MCCA was created in 2013 by Coty Forno. Coty wanted to create a brave, positive, space for artists of all ages to be able to purse their passion, discover their authentic voice, and build the self confidence to go out and make the world a better place. MCCA was founded on the belief that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Dream it. Believe it.
