We strive to offer creative, stimulating events to complement our exhibitions. There might be a gallery talk by an exhibiting artist, our curator or a docent; or a workshop in our art studio; perhaps an exhibition-related lecture, such as when we explored bonsai, ikebana, sushi and saki and the tea ceremony during a kimono exhibit; or when Gee’s Bend quilters performed gospel music, conducted quilting workshops and took the first stitches in a community quilt. See our Calendar for what’s on the schedule.
Paint Your Own Holiday Ornaments with the Art Museum’s pottery studio’s instructors! Each participant will receive three pre-fired ornaments (a tree, a star and the state of SC) and will be instructed on how to glaze them. Pottery Studio instructor, Arielle Fatuova will take students on a tour of the studio and kiln room while they enjoy light refreshments.
Gather at the Art Museum with your family and friends for a wreath-making class to get you in the holiday spirit. Join floral designer Harriet Charles of South Gate Design to create a beautiful wreath to brighten your home for the holidays using a mix of traditional greenery. A photographer will be on hand to capture you, your friends and your creation.
