ZOOMING AHEAD

We offer ONLINE ART COURSES so you can connect and learn from wherever you are!

During our closure for the pandemic, the Beach Art Center has been excited to offer our students online instruction through Zoom. We hope that this has helped to continue your creative learning and inspiration during this challenging time. While we all hoped that the impact on our lives from Covid 19 would be temporary, we have come to realize that "Zooming" our courses online is a great opportunity to connect with more people throughout the year, and should become a permanent part of our program going forward.

Zoom brings your Art Instructor to You.

We believe this will not only allow students, who are unable to attend onsite, to continue to learn - but that it will also offer our students access to a broader range of instructors from outside our area!

If you are interested in trying a Zoom Online Course but have questions first, please give us a call at 727-596-4331 or email us at beachartcenter@gmail.com

 

CLASSES

Build your skills in these "core" classes with the area's best artist-instructors.
Classes take place at the Beach Art Center unless noted otherwise.
"Online" Classes may be viewed from home via ZOOM.
Please note the resume date for each Class below.
