Non-Discrimination Policy

The Arts Center of Clemson, does not discriminate against race, religion, color, national origin, gender, disability, or age. We want everyone, from youth to adult, to feel safe while creating art. We feel it is especially important for our young artists to feel safe discussing various topics with their peers. Our Director, Program Manager, and Staff do not interject their own opinions or interfere with conversations unless they become disrespectful. In addition, we respect the name and pronouns that anyone, including a minor, has expressed to us.



The Arts Center has four studio classrooms which are equipped for jewelry, clay, drawing, painting, photography and a variety of other enrichment activities. We offer an exciting selection of programs taught by qualified, artist instructors in a variety of disciplines. Pre-registration is required three days before the start of class or workshops.
