Art with Amos

Sound Garden

In what is sure to be a fun-filled week, students will have the unique opportunity to work alongside local artist Amos Hummell as they create mixed media wall hangings in the style of the artist himself! Drawing inspiration from Amos’s recent Sound Garden and other highly collectible collections, participants will explore a variety of painting and mixed media techniques then have fun using paint, wire, beads, modeling clay, and other embellishments to morph a wooden board into a “musician”. At the end of the week, these creative characters will hang with the other sound gardeners to form a collective jam band; a nod to the Rock of Ages musical at the Arts Center this summer.

Safety Protocols

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.

Amos Hummell
Amos Hummell

is new to our camp faculty this summer and we can’t for community youth to have an opportunity to work alongside him in our studio! A self-taught artist, Amos is known for his brightly-hued palette that reflects the vibrant local culture that inspires him. His work is best described as non-conventional, as he has been known to employ all manner of materials in his work, all in the name of creative expression. These days, Hummell works from his home studio, where he can be found for hours on end, trying to replicate with paint and brushes the stories that fill his head.

This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
