“It’s the Arts Center’s goals to continuously improve the caliber of our classes. This year we reached out to highly regarded artists who suggested innovative courses that would appeal to youth and adults,” said Heather Rast, executive director. “We have a summer lineup of the best variety of classes the Arts Center has ever offered.”

One well-known artist teaching for the first time at the Arts Center is University of South Carolina Ceramics Professor Sean Clute, who will offer a five-session pottery class for adults. Clute, who has a master’s in fine arts, is offering an introduction for amateurs in how to achieve self-expression while developing skills as potters. Clute says he walks students through process, demonstrations and then easy an exercise.” Clute’s sessions are held each Saturday in June.
