Blue Wall Group

Independent Artists in the Upstate of South Carolina



Blue Wall Group, Inc. is a non-profit organization providing support and facilities for artists in rural Northern Greenville and Pickens Counties.

We are based at Slater-Marietta Arts Center, which houses the Emerging Artists Gallery, dance studio, music rooms and conference / community meeting room, and where we teach classes and sell the work of artists - all under one roof!

The name the Cherokee gave to the area we live in was Under the Blue Wall. And we like Blue Man Group... so ...

We are looking for more teachers in other subjects, and invite anyone who would like to teach a class of any kind - anything from yoga to joghurt-making but especially Music and Dance -  to get in touch and discuss it.


We are also hoping to start adult classes so if you have an idea for one let us know and we’ll work with you on that.
