Newberry's visual arts program for all ages and experience. Offering classes, workshops, and painting parties for any artist!

Newberry Arts Center

The Newberry Arts Center was established in 2014 and is a division of the City’s Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department. In less than a year a solid arts program was established that includes programs for all ages. The mission of the Newberry Arts Center (NAC) and Newberry Arts Program is to provide quality arts experiences to all interested citizens and increase support for working artists while creating appreciative current and future art patrons by involving the diverse population and fostering local economic growth while enhancing the quality of life for all residents. The NAC also established and hosted the first ever South Carolina Clay Conference, an annual conference for clay enthusiasts held in Newberry each year.

Registration for SC ClayCon 2021 to be announced soon! 

The South Carolina Clay Conference; Moving Clay Forward, was created by NAC and two long-time clay educators in SC. This conference was started to bring together potters and clay artists in SC and the surrounding region for education, evaluation and celebration of the many techniques to which clay lends itself.

In conjunction with the conference, is the SC ClayCon Annual Pottery Sale, one of the largest pottery sales in South Carolina featuring the work of presenters and attendees. This sale is open to the public and free to attend.
