Welcome to Blair Center for the Arts!
The Blair Center for the Arts (formerly Creative Arts of Mount Pleasant) is an art center that engages and inspires our community through interactive art education for kids, teens, and adults. We offer painting, photography, mixed media, crafting, and more classes to help you discover and nurture your inner artist.
Our emphasis on small classes allows for stronger individual attention from our talented team of instructors. Whether students are creating original projects or working as a team, the results are incredible! Guided by their instructors, our students gain self-confidence as they explore and develop their artistic abilities. BCA is passionate about empowering students of all ages with tools of creative self-expression.
