The Union County Community Arts Council and South Piedmont Community College are partnering to bring arts to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic., Virtual classes will bring visual art, culinary arts, and music to life throughout the fall.
The Arts Enrichment Series runs through December. Each month has a unique theme. September is “Love Your Space” where projects focus on things in the home like building a dreamcatcher or terrarium. October brings “Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice” which will focus on a mix of crafting or baking with pumpkins. November’s theme is “Falling into Fall” where leaves and lights take center stage in creating art. December, the last month of the series, will bring a bit of snow and holiday sounds as we celebrate the art, music, and food of the “Holidaze” season.
“We’ve had to step back since there are no in-person events and find ways that we can stay a part of the community,” said Barbara Faulk, Executive Director of the Arts Council. “Art means so much to the county, to our quality of life, and to us as individuals.”
The classes promise to bring art and fun to the community from the comfort of your own home. Ansley Adams, Director of Fine and Performing Arts at South Piedmont, hopes that individuals will find their love of the arts through these classes. The live experience offers one-on-one time with instructors to understand technique and history while creating a work of art.
Classes will be offered on some Saturdays and Thursdays during each month.
