• Performance Skills (June 10-14) This week will focus on the foundations of performance – presence, character, voice, and movement. Each class will write their own play and apply the skills they learn to create a production for family and friends.
• Lowcountry Fairy Tails (June 17-21) Inspired by the flora, fauna, and unique culture of the Lowcountry, this class will perform well-loved fairy tales … with a twist! Students will learn basic performance skills while also getting a taste of the rich heritage of the Lowcountry.
• Theatrical Design (June 24-28) Not really crazy about performing, but have creativity that’s ready to be shared? This class is for you! We will focus on the backstage side of theater — costume and set design — and learn how these invaluable pieces come together with the play to create a production that is cohesive and imaginative.
• The Amazing World of Puppetry! (July 8-12) Using every day, household items we will create different kinds of puppets and learn some of the art of puppetry. Family and friends are invited on the last day of class to see our wacky creations! Mornings will be for 6 to 9-year-olds; Afternoons for 10 to 16-year-olds. ARTworks is located in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary St.
BAA Membership Drive: 1962 was the Quadricentennial (400 years) of the landing of Jean Ribaut with a group of Huguenots on what is now Parris Island. A committee called the Prologue to Freedom was formed to celebrate this event during March of 1962 in Beaufort. The group called out to artists to create oil paintings that would reflect this great event in our local history. The late Catherine Wolfe’s oil painting was a winning entry. It depicts the landing with numerous French crests surrounding the scene. The original now hangs in Beaufort City Hall; 1,000 prints were made of the original painting and only 100 survive today. Mrs. Wolfe was a founder and past-president of Beaufort Art Association. Now, 51 years later, Beaufort Art Association is offering these reproductions of Catherine Wolfe’s painting to the public during our 2013 membership drive. Any new member will receive one of the few remaining prints in existence. Please contact Beaufort Art Association for more information 843-521-4444 www.beaufortartassociation.com.
