WE, as a family love ARTWORKS! Thank you for offering such great
adult and children art classes. My daughter can't wait for the next
class to start before the current class is over! The grandparents love
to watch the kids and see their creations both on stage and on the walls.
The concerts at Port Royal have been a great form of entertainment. Having such a variety of artworks offered through their program is a
great reason to live here. Receiving emails consistently advising you
of and when everything is being offered and what is happening around
town is a pleasure. Thank you, you have enlightened our lives!!

I am a singer/songwriter and truly find it inspiring when I am in the Arts Council. Not only am I inspired by the artwork, black box theater, artists that commune on a daily basis but the ambiance is very reflective of what my life is about which is creativity.
Let me just share a great story that recently transpired within the Arts Council. As of recently I am in the process of recording my third album and was listening to some music to begin my writing process while at ARTworks (Arts Council of Beaufort) and just began looking around and the creative spirits began to flow very loudly and quickly. Needless to say the song was written in a very short amount of time. My concept for the video would require a dancer so I began asking around and made some phone calls, left messages and moved on to another song. Well as it would happen I was in the Arts Council again and was approached by a dancer whom I had left a message with, well she wanted to hear the song and was immediately inspired and wanted to do an improv, so they played the music in the theater and the dancer went onstage to do her improv which was beautiful and amazing. We are now preparing to perform the song together and upcoming event. These are the amazing types of things that can happen at the Arts Council.

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 "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 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.

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.

They are really reaching out to the Arts Community. They organized a summit meeting and invited all interested parties concerned about the Arts in Beaufort County. The purpose was to get ideas on the table, find a group of concerned citizens and art providers to work together, and to come up with a plan on how to keep Arts alive. We have many problems with funding here and problems with communication about events. So, hopefully with us working together we can find a way to keep art available to the public and our students.
