We're ZOOMING forward in the face of a Pandemic!
Zoom Brings Your Art Instructor to You!
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 we must adjust to living with this for a long time. At The Beach Art Center we have come to realize that online classes and workshops will be a permanent part of our program going forward. We believe this will not only allow students, who are unable to learn onsite, to continue to learn but that it will also offer our students access to instructors unable to teach onsite. It's been wonderful to see both our local friends as well as our snowbirds join us in these Zoom classes.
No matter where you are, with an internet connection along with a computer, tablet or smartphone, you can join our Zoom classes. For more information about these classes, please see our website or click the button above.

We are working to offer a Zoom option for many of our Live Classes going forward.
It’s something we’d like to offer and will be an important way we move forward. A live class at the Beach Art Center can also be “Zoomed” to students who are unable to be there in person.

Return to Pre-Covid-19 Class Pricing - Register Before August 1st for $20 Online Classes.
During our mandated closure for Covid, we were happy to offer our new online classes at a temporary discounted rate of $20. However, the Beach Art Center has now reopened with a new gallery show, “Art is Hope”, and we are working to restart live classes in the near future.
With our reopening, we are returning to our regular pre-Covid pricing of $30 for non-members and $24 for members. Effective immediately, all new classes, whether live or Zoom, will be priced at $30 for non-members, $24 for members. For all Zoom classes currently priced at $20, we will be returning to our pre-Covid rates, effective August 1, 2020. If you register prior to August 1, for any class now priced at $20, you will pay the old $20 rate for that class. The Beach Art Center believes we offer competitively low fees for classes with our excellent instructors, especially in the face of increased expenses due to the pandemic. We are also committed to the health and safety of our staff and guests as we reopen and return to fulfilling our mission to inspire lifelong learning in the creative arts.
Everyone please stay safe and continue to feed your creative soul!
