Our goal is to add another dimension to the arts in the Midlands. We would like to make classes available to any one, of any age, and any diverse group who has the desire to make art a part of their lives. During the last few years we have attracted students from all parts of South Carolina and taught them that they can have an artistic impact in this state in many ways. Our students have attained the confidence to enter contests, display in galleries, and some are developing portfolios to make art their future career. Their success is our success, and we are proud of the role we play in assisting in their creative development. We believe that everyone is capable of expressing themselves artistically and that anyone can learn to do so. The purpose of this site is to share our art and vision to inform, encourage and inspire all who are interested.
