We are very excited to announce that Mayfair Art Studios will continue classes through the month of August! 

If you didn't already know, Mayfair Art Studios is a division of Chapman Cultural Center that is intended to be a dynamic arts incubator in the Arcadia village of Spartanburg, South Carolina (Spartanburg's Westside, only 5 minutes from the Westgate Mall). It offers hourly rentals of dance studios, ceramics wheels or the entire studio, kilns for glass and ceramics, and music practice studios!

Our hope is that this new facility will bring together a diverse creative community to learn about, and make art. We also hope it will help our community to discover each other’s cultures and build a new, vibrant, and economically successful venture for creatives in Spartanburg County. 

Classes being offered this month include Intro to Wheel-Throwing, Pottery Wheel Basics with professional ceramics artist Haley Swanson and Galaxy Workshop, a Hip-Hop Dance Class with professional performer Moses "Galaxy" Jenkins.

Intro to Wheel Throwing will allow students to join professional artist Haley Swanson for a 2-hour session of learning and creativity with clay! During the class, students will watch an in-depth demonstration by Haley, followed by an hour of hands-on instruction on the pottery wheel. Students will learn the basics of working on the pottery wheel and make their own piece of pottery which will be available to pick up 2-3 weeks after the class. 

This class is open to youth & adults age 16+. Students, age 12-15 can attend with a parent. The class is open to all levels, no experience is required and supplies are included. The cost is $45 per person.
