The Arts Council of Beaufort Co. has evolved into a wonderful asset to our great community. They provide programs of interest to all ages and a diverse group. The enthusiam and energy is evident in the great programs for children after school and the fantastic street concerts in Port Royal. The space for performing has greatly improved and the galleries have unique and well organized shows. They also do a great job of promoting their offerings and opportunities and informing the public

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My grandchildren taking the after school classes and seeing shows in the gallery and theatre.

Make it easier for them to receive financial support from the state and community.

The "zine" review is spot on. Encouragement, suggestons, support, advice, applause. Instead of trying to convince the public to conform to their views, this group is devoted to actually listening to your visions and helping you make it them happen. To put it simple, when it comes to the Arts Council of Beaufort County.....BRAVO!

The Arts Council of Beaufort has been a MAJOR part of my life since moving to the are in 2006. I speak as an artist (musician/actor) and and arts teacher (I teach K-5 music).

My students have been impacted by the Arts Council through providing visiting artists (J.W. and Jenny Rone as well
as Lisa Rentz) to help us produce an arts integrated program about South Carolina history (in 2007). My students were then impacted the following year by being invited to perform our Veterans Day program as part of an evening art exhibit. Once again my school was impacted as the arts council provided funds, though a grant we had written, to help purchase stage lights to enhance our performances. J.W. was with me 100% of the time and helped to recommend the types of lights we should use and connected me with a local dealer who would be able to help me purchase and install all of the lighting. I couldn't have asked for more.

As a musican/actor I find it important for me to experience the arts in every way possible. The ACBC provides numerous opportunites for ANYONE to experience all forms of art. Their new black box theater is AMAZING and I have enjoyed every play I have seen there and am currently enjoying being a part of one of the plays being done there, right now. Unfortunately, I do not belive these opportunites, along with the MANY others that I have little time to mention, would not be made available to our communty.

Beaufort County is a very arts rich area of South Carolina and through the ACBC those in the community, as well as surrounding areas, are able to better experience the music, theater, visual art, dance, and creative writing opportunites the ACBC has to offer.

I wouldn't change anything. They are an amaxing group of people and could only be made better through more funds, which are challenging to come by these days.

The Arts Council is the heart and soul of the ARTS in our area! So grateful for their knowledge and expertise. Their varied means of communication are perfect for arts-minded folks like me, constantly keeping us updated on the pulse of the Arts - where to go, what's available, how to get involved - LOVE IT! Walking into their Boundary Street location is a breath of fresh air - artists all around, art to enjoy, a welcoming atmosphere! Can't beat it! I love the classes they offer for young people. My children have taken numerous classes and many of my students are enrolled right now. They make every effort to help those in need still have the opportunity to participate as well.

In many ways. My children and I have participated in many arts classes - pottery, theater, movie making, etc. Our family has attended many community events sponsored by the Arts Council. On one occasion I taught an afterschool class as a community artist). I have participated in the local Chalk Festival (It was such a fun family event). About 4 years ago my school was the recipient of a grant for a theater performance. The list goes on and on....

Bring back the Chalk Festival! :) We miss it!!!

The Arts Council of Beaufort County has brought performing arts, in particular, back to life and helped bring the arts community together at a time when every dollar spent by the arts consumer is more difficult to come by. They provide low-cost space for artists to create and market their work, as well as instruction in a variety of arts for children and adults. Their budding theater productions have filled a huge gap, and they bring both local and out of area talent to our attention at a price the average Beaufort citizen can afford. I'm a huge fan and attend as many performances as I can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Going to all the theater productions, an occasional art opening, a few musical performances, and one-person shows.

Continue to grow its theater arm, add a play writing contest and acting classes for adults.

The arts council of Beaufort County is a superior organization. JW & Jenny's direction has grown the arts in Beaufort County to an outstanding level. Having moved to Beaufort way before the Arts Council existed, I couldn't begin to list what we have now that we didn't have then. With JW & Jenny at the helm the growth just keeps on happen' Thank you JW & Jenny and all the folks involved with the Arts Council. And thanks to all artists for your art, the sunbeam of humans.

Started going to the center a couple of years ago and always
enjoyed the entertainment that was provided. Recently have liked
it even more since the expansion of the theatre.
Always enjoy the brousing the art and meeting the artists in the
lobby.
The facility is a great asset
to the town of Beaufort and surrounding
area.

The Arts Council of Beaufort County is a great resource for anyone doing something creative in the Lowcountry. They are accessible, down-to-earth, supportive, positive, energetic and they always know what's going on! I'm the only person I know doing a zine in Beaufort County, and the Arts Council has given me numerous opportunities to present my work, despite the fact that zines are virtually unknown in this area. No matter what you're trying to do, they will have good ideas for you.

Three months ago I moved to Beaufort, knowing no one and feeling very out of place. I even considered moving back home because I didn't think that Beaufort was turning out to be a good match for me. All of that changed when I found ArtWorks. As soon as I walked into the gallery I felt welcomed and comfortable. Everyone was friendly and truly interested in meeting me and helping me along my journey. The artists are all wonderfully talented and truly kind people. The opportunities for the community to get involved are widely diverse, ranging from performing arts to visual arts for all ages. Thank you ArtWorks for making me a part of your community. I only hope that more people walk through the doors every day to become a part of the ArtWorks family!

I helped out with the Mardi Gras fundraiser. It was so exciting to see all the people coming in to enjoy food, fun, and dancing - all to help ArtWorks. It showed what a valuable asset to the community they have become.

I would make sure they had the funds that they needed in order to make all their dreams (and those of the people they help) come true. JW and Jenny are experts at working with a tight budget to create unique and educational experiences - imagine what they could accomplish with fewer limits!
