Winter/Spring class registration has begun!

Check out all the great classes and workshops beginning January 2018.

Summer Art Camp registration begins March 5. Camp dates listed under Youth Classes.

We are The Arts Center of Clemson.

We provide exceptional art education to adults and children and make art exciting and accessible to the community.


The Arts Center has four studio classrooms which are equipped for jewelry, ceramics, 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.

Our painting studio offers classes in all types of painting: watercolors, acrylics, oils, pastels and more.  Learn to paint in the styles of various painters.  Drawing, print making, encaustic and mixed media are among the classes offered.

This studio is equipped with everything you need to make beautiful jewelry. We have all the tools to create sterling silver or copper bracelets, earrings and pendants by soldering, sawing, piercing and folding. We have currently expanded our class offerings to include enameling.

Hand building and wheel throwing classes offer a variety of techniques to learn. Project classes let you complete fun, useful items in a short amount of time. Even if you have no experience you can build birdhouses, baking dishes, garden totems and more. Advanced classes guide you through Extreme Pots, lidded vessels and Pots that Pour to improve skills and creativity.

Understanding your camera is just one of the course offerings in this studio. Learn what all the buttons, dials and settings are for on your new camera so you can take great photos. Photoshop and pinhole photography are some of the classes offered as well as photographing 3D art and portrait photography.

Passport to the Arts is quite literally a journey. Attendees receive their "Passport" at an announced starting location and stamp their books at several venues as they travel through Clemson on provided transportation. At each new venue, a new batch of food, music, art and creativity will be on display. During Passport to the Arts, entertainment is at every turn — even on the shuttle; local musicians greet you with their talents as you travel through Clemson. This innovative combination of art and entertainment has made Passport to the Arts the Town and Gown event of the year — you do not want to miss this trip!

Volunteer at The Arts Center

As a non-profit, a lot of the work we do at The Arts Center is dependent on help from our volunteers. We need help in many areas, at a variety of times during the day. Volunteer opportunities range from administrative tasks, special event preparation, class assistants and even long-term internships. Please be advised that we may not have available opportunities in all areas at all times.
