The School Arts Residency Program

Serving Kershaw County student for over twenty years, this program provides hands-on, class room arts experiences with practicing artists. Past residencies have included storytelling, mime and movement, ceramics, puppetry, music, poetry and drama.

The School Arts Performance Series

This series includes performance and lectures/demonstrations for large audiences. The chamber music, professional theatre and dance companies, West African drumming ensembles, and hundreds of artists and performers have treated students, parents, and teachers to live entertainment. Teacher and artist coordination is emphasized so that curricular objectives can be fostered by performances.

Arts Arising

Arts Arising is an intense, arts focused program during the month of June. The Arts Arising Program allows school district gifted and talented students to develop toward their full potential in a supportive environment that challenges them to move beyond the expected.
