I originally came to know about ARTworks through their wonderful after school art programs. My children fell in love (with the people, the atmosphere, and the opportunities to create) and thus so did I. I found myself striving to be a part of any and everything they offered-theatre productions, concerts, arts summit... I am currently serving on the Board of Directors and honestly feel proud to be part of such a dynamic group.

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!

This is such a wonderful place where children and adults can participate in and experience so many forms of Art. I have volunteered as an actor. Working on my art here in The Black Box theater has enriched my life as ArtWorks does everyone's who walk through their doors. Thank you Arts Council of Beaufort.

we are planning on moving to Beaufort County but are still living in Colorado and yet I am already reading the Arts Council email every month and have signned up for a class to be taken in April even if we have not moved yet . I love their art openings and how they support the new and local arts. As a professional artist I can not wait to get even more involved.
