I and my family are considering a move to STX. Besides my wife & I we have two teenagers (13 & 16). We are all artistic & i was hoping someone may be able to shed some light on the local artist community and how easy it may be to get involved & even join a coop or get lessons / internships.
-My wife has been involved in ceramics for years & we understand island living could make that difficult, but am curious is there are any ceramic artists/ ceramics community. I see the museum had open studio time, Does antone know if there was a good turnout & what the facility like? (I have emailed the museum)
-My daughter is 13 & has experience with solder, welding, glass bead making, jewelry making, etc. Any thoughts on how she can maintain this interest on STX?
-Finally, my son is 16 and plays electric guitar & bass guitar. Anybody providing lessons on the island for an experienced guitar player. by this i mean intermediate to advanced lessons? He is into Metal and would want to continue that.
I have communicated & visited Good Hope Country Day School & I think their program is strong, but am looking for extracurricular stuff.
I really appreciate your help.
