Special Interest Groups

Seabrook Island Artist Guild

The Seabrook Island Artist Guild comprises over 100 members from Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island and Johns Island. Our members enjoy the beauty that surrounds us every day as well as learning from professional artist and each other, or simply enjoying our members’ artistic creations. Artists in the Guild use a variety of media to create their works including oils, acrylics, watercolor, sculpture, weaving and more, as well as artistic crafts.

The purpose of the Guild is to stimulate the creativity of its members by providing opportunities to learn, exhibit their art and collaborate regularly with other artists at monthly meetings, demonstrations, classes, art shows and workshops. We also encourage interest in art within the community through outreach and local exhibitions, acquainting the public with the work of our members, and supporting local art school programs.
