Educational Resources

The Charleston Gaillard Center’s Education and Community Program offers free resources to teachers, students, and the Lowcountry community.

Our Director of Education, Sterling deVries, M.Ed., and our Education Manager, Stephanie Lancaster, create lesson plans purposefully and carefully to correlate with the South Carolina Department of Education Standards, highlighting arts-enhanced curriculum. The Gaillard Center also works with community partners to share educational resources with the Lowcountry. We have activities and resources for ALL ages.
