Beaufort Arts Council

Whether you’re a skilled art professional, an aspiring artisan or craftsman, or an art enthusiast, there are various activities to get involved with at the Beaufort Arts Council. Now an all-volunteer organization, the Beaufort Arts Council is a resource for artists throughout the county. The organization fosters a creative environment, encouraging residents and visitors alike to share their artistic skills and experiences. A robust schedule of classes and workshops has been created, ranging from painting and drawing, to photography and how to build a successful arts business. 

We are focused on providing fresh programming that is relevant to the needs of Beaufort County with engaging classes, workshops and events. In the coming months, we plan to hold a variety of entertaining and educational fundraising events, including a “Showtime at the Apollo” talent show, a “Harlem Renaissance Afternoon of Jazz,” and a concert featuring the popular Evolution Big Band. You can view additional information on their website ( or inquire further by calling 843-379-2787.
