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).

 

LEARN, CREATE, RELAX

All Mediums - All Levels

**PLEASE NOTE**
We have a new REGISTRATION SYSTEM for booking classes!
The first time you register for a class you will need to enter your email and phone number,
and create a new account to save your information (if you like).
