Student lodge

Student lodge Our new school is located in Dru's ancestral hometown of Blair, SC on a scenic 100-acre campus that is part of Sumter National Forest. Free from urban and metropolitan distractions, it is an ideal learning environment. Our new studio is much larger and better equipped than our previous studio in Wake Forest, NC.

Student lodge Two 4000 square-foot buildings, designed to house up to 9 students each, are now ready for the 2009 workshop attendees. The buildings are situated approximately 2500 feet apart and feature 8 private bedrooms, each with a private bath, and a two-room suite. Building #1 houses the main dining area, and the classroom and conference room are located in building #2. The artist lodging is a non-smoking facility for students only.

Individual meal alterations will be made for students with special dietary needs.
