Where: Marsh House

2. Express Your Creativity
When: October 6 from 4:00 to 5:30 pm

Painting is a great way to express your creativity and unwind after a long day. This fall, channel your inner Picasso and join local artist Betsy Douglas as she leads a 90-minute watercolor workshop. Betsy will teach the basic watercolor techniques and guide participants through the entire process of capturing a still life from start to finish. Each participant will go home with a 9×12 watercolor they painted themselves — and possibly even a new hobby.
3. Compete at the Fun Flurry Shoot
When: October 9 from 9:30 to 11:00 am

4. Grill Out With Ted’s Butcherblock
When: October 11 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm
Where: The Beach Club
While many people often associate grilling with the summertime, Kiawah’s fall weather is ideal for cookouts. Ted Dombrowski, owner and primary butcher of Ted’s Butcherblock, will be on the Island to teach Club Members how to grill meat to perfection. This interactive lecture will be held at The Beach Club and is a great opportunity to expand your grilling skills while learning how to prepare the best-tasting meats on the Island.
5. Discover Your New Favorite Wine
When: October 12 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm
Where: Marsh House
Fall is the perfect time to swap out crisp white wines for a bolder glass of red — and if you don’t know where to begin, a wine tasting is a great place to start. Spend your evening tasting an assortment of rich and earthy wines that will pair perfectly with any autumn day. Sip on a variety of fall-inspired flavors, such as tart berries, warm vanilla, savory spices, and hints of brown sugar while you take in all the beauty that surrounds you. The event will be led by Azura Tirozzi of the Country Vintner and includes a wine tasting, as well as light hors d’oeuvres.
6. Get a Taste of Kiawah’s Culinary Excellence
