The Artists’ Loft School

The Artists’ Loft School in Charleston, SC (Mt. Pleasant) provides a range of art classes for adults, art classes and summer camps for children, art workshops with local and national artists, and holiday workshops. TALS offers a fun and nurturing environment for students to learn, create and share in the visual arts.

Most importantly we offer a place to unplug, slow down and take the time you need to accomplish your artistic goals. We encourage students to engage in and enjoy the process of creating art not simply focus on the end product. This applies to young students too, who often show great potential but just don’t have the time in a traditional school setting to take their abilities forward.  National momentum in education is growing towards exploration of how the intersection of the arts with the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields can enhance student engagement and learning, and even help unlock creative thinking and innovation and problem solving. At TALS we are huge proponents for integrating STEAM into students’ everyday lives and learning processes.


From pre-school to college and upward, our goal is to provide the community with an open studio for self-expression, exploration, imagination, cultural and historical knowledge and a place to have a great time!


For more information on classes please check our course list regularly as we are always adding classes based on community needs and response. We are grateful to be part of the Charleston arts community, one of the most vibrant art environments in the country!
