The following policies will be in effect until further notice.


Effective as of 10/25/21:

Going forward, masks will be optional.  If someone is inclined to wear one, they are welcome to do so, but masks will no longer be required.  

However, we do request that the unvaccinated continue to wear a mask while in the Beach Art Center, to protect fellow students, teachers and staff.  

Social distancing will still be encouraged and casual visitors to the Art Center will still be required to sign in.  Registered students do not have to sign in.  

Our policies are subject to change in the event Pinellas County infection rates show a spike. 



All fees associated with classes and workshops are non-refundable.  In the event a registrant needs to change or cancel their registration, the registrant should contact the Beach Art Center as far in advance as possible. Any agreement to change, cancel or transfer a registration after the class/workshop date has taken place is made at the sole discretion of the instructor.

Some classes are sold in packs of 3 or 4 - meaning you must register and pay for the pack of classes in advance.  Missed classes are non-refundable and may not be made up at a later date.

Beach Art Center reserves the right to cancel classes or workshops if minimums are not met or for any other reason relevant to business needs. In the event of a cancellation initiated by Beach Art Center, the registrant will have the option to transfer to an available class or workshop, or to receive a full refund.

Beach Art Center does not hold credits on account for future use.


Registration constitutes agreement to policies, waivers and releases published in the registration system. These include a waiver of liability and release of permission to take and use photos during classes, workshops, summer camp, gallery receptions, and all events.  These images may be used for any Beach Art Center marketing purposes such as print materials, website, event listings, and all social media outlets.


The Beach Art Center does not allow firearms in the building.
Attendance requires advance registration and prepayment.
Parents are welcome to visit but may not attend classes unless registered.
The Beach Art Center does not store student art and reserves the right to dispose of items left by students.
