The Fine Arts Society of Belleair Bluffs presented a check for $2000 to the Beach Art Center of Indian Rocks Beach, Friday, March 23, at the opening of the Art Center’s latest show called “April Medley”.
The Fine Arts Society was founded in 1963 in Belleair Bluffs. The purpose of the group was to foster interest in the visual arts and to educate the public and society members in the visual arts. Linda Keene, longtime member of the Fine Art Society, said, “The Beach Art Center is a treasure to the community and we are making this contribution to assist them in expanding their offerings for children and families.”
The Beach Art Center has long had a successful summer camp, called “Creative Kids Camp” and hopes to build on this with year-round opportunities for children and families to participate in the creative arts.
Registration is currently open for the 2018 Creative Kid’s Camp. Weekly sessions of the Beach Art Center’s Creative Kid’s Camp will offer two scheduling tracks this year, a choice of full-day sessions and a selection of morning sessions. All camps will be booked as full one-week packages and will begin June 4th and run through the week of July 16th. Full details, information and registration is available at the www.beachartcenter.org.
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. Located at 1515 Bay Palm Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach, a full schedule of course offerings and gallery shows can be found on their website at www.beachartcenter.org.
