Our friends at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum are happy to announce a uniquely-designed workshop. Participants in this workshop will be given one-on-one attention by pottery instructor and studio director, Arielle Fatuova – demonstrating how to throw on the pottery wheel and create two pieces of your very own. 

After the workshop, student potters will trade in their clay-covered aprons for a delightful lunch in the sunny Tea Porch – with ocean view! Spend the remainder of time relaxing and browsing the galleries. Exhibitions include North Carolina artist Elizabeth Bradford’s Time + Terrain consisting of 27 mesmerizing paintings of various scale that invite viewers to study the natural world; Charleston, South Carolina painter and installationist artist Kate Hooray Osmond’s large-scale, brightly painted aerial views of the American landscape with gold leaf overlay and bold, architectural lines; and Collection Connections, an educational exhibition of works from the Museum’s permanent collection that connects visual art content with South Carolina history, geography, sociology and literature. 

While participating in this creative and enlightening workshop, enjoy 10% off at the Museum Shop! Can’t join us for the class? All Convention attendees still receive the Museum Shop discount during the days of the 2019 Convention!
