Welcome to the Studio Art Center. Where your true creative self can find a home among like minded individuals. 

Maybe you have taken one of those paint and drink classes and found it to be fun but you really didnt learn how to paint and you left yearning for true art instruction. Maybe you have always been creative but got too busy with work and children. Maybe you have had a traumatic event and are looking for a method to express your inner spirit. Perhaps you are recently retired or become child free and looking to fill your time. What the reason, The Studio Art Center can help you find your creative side.


The Studio Art Center strives to give a safe environment where individuality is of the utmost importance. TSAC sees art as the ultimate expression of humans as individuals. There is beauty in diversity. We are very much about helping you develop as an artist in your own way on your own schedule and on your own creative path. We strive to be very accomodating and freedom oriented in a loving atmosphere of fellow artists. You can be your true self here with us.


Most classes are taught by Susan W Pidgeon, MFA. She has been teaching in Charleston SC at various locations since 2001 and holds the highest art degree you can have and it enables her to teach on the college level. No need to be intimidated, beginners are welcome at The Studio Art Center. We all have been beginners at some point.
