South Carolina Approves Charleston Building Arts Schools
By The Herald
The Commission on Higher Education voted Thursday to give the Charleston School of the Building Arts approval to begin looking for its first students.
The commission voted to allow the school to advertise for its first class of students to enroll in the fall of 2005.
The School of the Building Arts was established five years ago and currently offers classes in conjunction with the College of Charleston, which has a program in historic preservation, and Clemson University, which has an architecture program.
The school will teach techniques, such as plastering and masonry, and will be the nation's first four-year artisan college, organizers say.
