The McClellanville Arts Council was organized in 1977 by three young women who wanted to bring the fine arts, arts instruction, and cultural activities to the sleepy little fishing village where they had chosen to live. Furthermore, working through the local schools, churches, and fraternal organizations, they hoped to encourage residents to record, preserve, and publicize the unique culture of the coastal area encompassing the northern half of Charleston County.
The Arts Council features a gift shop with local artisan treasures. It has a Gallery that hosts various artists creations throughout the year. There is also a studio where you can sign up to learn pottery, glass art, and painting.
