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 43rd Anniversary.
We are constantly evaluating our mask and social distancing policy based on CDC guidelines and local regulations. Our Covid Policy is still in effect until further notice.
Things slow down a bit for us in the Summer months of June-August. Our Summer Camp kids are here and require some room for their creative messes! Many of our weekly classes take a break and return in the Fall, however there are a few that continue through summer!
We have several Online courses using "Zoom"... we think it's a great way to stay connected, learn, and have fun! Some classes will even be taught In-House with a Zoom option! Look for the "HYBRID" banner on the class photo.
We welcome you to enjoy our Gift Shop full of local Gift Items - open Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm. A mask is required to enter.
Our Gallery Shows are taking place, but with some modifications. Visitors may enjoy our Show in-person Mon-Fri 9am-4pm while wearing a mask. The Shows will also be featured online. We will not have Opening Receptions until further notice.
