BEACH ART CENTER
Indian Rocks Beach, Florida
"Engaging our Community in Creative Arts since 1978"
WELCOME TO THE BEACH
Art is healing. Anyone who has held a brush, a pencil or shaped a bit of clay transforming those elements into something of their own creation has experienced this healing effect.
And what better place to feel completely relaxed and inspired, than on the beach?
Whether you're into traditional media like drawing, oils and watercolor, enjoy sculpting with clay or like playing with mixed media, collage and acrylics - you'll have plenty of choices.
And if you just want to have a studio space with good light and other artists to paint with, we offer Open Studio hours.
Local art centers and galleries like the Beach Art Center bring the arts to people where they live and play. Today, the mission of the Beach Art Center is “to inspire lifelong learning, empower the individual, and engage the community of all ages in the creative arts”.
We opened our doors in 1978, this year we joyfully celebrate our 42nd Anniversary.
WE HAVE A NEW REGISTRATION SYSTEM!
Beginning May 14th, the Beach Art Center will be using a new system for registering for Courses.
If you were a user of our old system, your email and password information will not automatically transfer to this new system. The first time you book a course or purchase a membership, you will need to enter your email & phone number. Once you set up an account, using a password - this information will be saved. You can register without a password, but your contact details will not be saved and will need to be entered each time – it’s your option.
Unlike our old booking system, with our new system, if you set up an account with a password, you will have the option to save your credit card details so you can easily register in the future without entering that number each time (a feature many of you requested).
At this time the Beach Art Center is plans to reopen our buiding in phases. The first phase will be our Gift Shop on Monday July 6th. Our hours will be Mon-Thur 10am-3pm. A mask will be required to enter the building.
Gallery Show & Sale
The next phase will be to open our Galleries for our upcoming show "Art is Hope". Art take-in for this show is 7/7-7/9 from 10am-3pm. The Gallery Show will run 7/13 - 8/28. During this time the Gallery will be open Mon-Thur, 10am-3pm. A mask will be required to enter the building.
ZOOM WITH US:
We have added several Online courses using "Zoom"... we think it's a great way to stay connected, learn, and have fun! Check them out here.
SUMMER CAMP: IMPORTANT NOTICE OF CANCELLATION
Due to safety concerns for our students and instructors, and the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 virus, the Beach Art Center has made the difficult decision to cancel our Creative Kids Summer Camp for 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
We will miss you, and look forward to seeing our Campers next year for Summer Camp 2021!
NEW REGISTRATION SYSTEM:
We are very excited to announce a new course registration system will be put into place on Thursday, May 14th. We really think you're going to like it! As with any new system we will need to work through the bugs. Please Contact Us if you experience any issues with registration.
