Our goal is to protect patrons, visitors, employees, staff, artists, and volunteers, as well as to mitigate the potential for the spread of the virus in our community. We continue to practice enhanced cleaning procedures and students who are exhibiting any signs of illness will be asked not to attend. For the 2022 Summer Camp season, The Arts Center will follow the CDC recommendations on masking for Beaufort County in accordance with the CDC’s U.S. COVID-19 Community Levels by County map.
As of 3/1/22 masking is not required but please know that this situation is fluid and subject to change.
Half-day campers should bring a water bottle and snack. Visual art campers should wear old clothing and/or bring a smock to protect their clothes. Theatre campers should bring a lunch.
Debi West doesn’t just teach art, she teaches children, and this is the highlight of her life and her profession. Teaching students to visually tell their stories through the mastery of the art elements, principles and media is beyond exciting, and as she steps back and watches them explore, discover, dream and succeed she is reminded daily why she loves her chosen profession so much.
Debi has taught children K-12 for the past 24 years in Gwinnett County, Georgia. She has spent her career being a life-long learner earning her BFA in studio art from USC, and receiving her Masters, Specialist and Ph.D (ABD) in art education from UGA.
