GA Seminars Porcelain Arts School “Tybee Event Wrap-Up”

Once again Georgia Seminars by the Sea Porcelain Art Schoool has been welcomed to Tybee with open arms.  What an exciting and fun-filled time! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning for many years to come.  The Tybee Island community has established a reputation for its hospitality and they have more than lived up to that this year.  We appreciate being included in Tybee’s quest to become a leading “art destination.”  Porcelain artists from around the world have been able to enjoy the Tybee experience and gain knowledge and inspiration from this wonderful setting.

During our stay here we have enjoyed 2 four-day sessions of classes taught by master porcelain artists from around the world. The Tybee Arts Association hosted a “Welcome Reception” at the home of Stacye and Lannie Jarrell. The mayor of Tybee Island also attended this gala event and presented Suzanne Painter, the school’s Founder and Administrator, with a proclamation. A wonderful tour of Tybee Island and Savannah, which included lunch at Paula Dean’s, and a porcelain exhibit held at the Tybee Art Center in conjunction with the Tybee Arts Association were other outstanding events of the two week seminar.  Our 3rd gathering here has left us with many wonderful memories and new friends that we look forward to seeing again next year.

Thank you!

Suzanne Painter
School Administrator
