Programs for Adults

Offered year-round for all levels of learners. Classes meet each Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Offering six classes for $90; drop-ins welcome at $18 a visit. Please call Susan Duke at 843.251.3877 for additional information or to register for class.


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.

“Blue often represents peace, tranquility and harmony. It is the color of the ocean, sky and indigo, which was once produced in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. During the 2020 lockdown, blue brought me calm during an unexpected scenario.

“I invite you to explore the color blue with me in a mixed media workshop. Vanna’s Choice yarns, provided by Lion Brand Yarn Company, will be available for your exploration. Bring one-three materials that you would like to incorporate into an artwork. We will create relief works applied to birch panels or canvases using these materials. All other supplies will be provided. I look forward to creating with you.” – Chellis Baird
