Donate $20 to the Beach Art Center for 2020
and earn a chance to win one of the beautiful prizes below!
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, and the Beach Art Center is no exception. Like many businesses, we had to close our doors and cancel classes, summer camp, and fundraising events in order to keep our community safe.
But thanks to our hardworking teachers and Board of Directors - we were able to redirect our time and effort into launching a new program of Classes and Workshops that our students could participate in from home!
While these Online "Zoom" courses have been successful, our income is significantly less than is typical of our normal operations during this time, and sadly, do not cover our operating costs.
This is where we can use your help.
We're asking for donations from our community to defray the effects of this lost revenue. We’re offering a fun opportunity to participate in an online raffle… TWENTY FOR 2020!
From now until the end of 2020, each donation of $20 enters you into a raffle for some exciting prizes to include artwork, classes, and more! So if you donate $100, your name will be entered 5 times!)
(SEE PRIZES BELOW - MORE ARE ADDED EACH WEEK!)
If you have previously enjoyed the Beach Art Center and participated in classes, attended events, or been inspired by our Gallery Shows, we hope you’ll consider donating $20 for 2020 to support our art community and keep the Beach Art Center going strong during this unprecedented time.
Each $20 Donation buys you a chance to win one of these prizes!

2 POTTERY PIECES +
1 POTTERY CLASS
By Joyce Scalzo
These pieces are wheel-thrown on the potter's wheel by our amazing Pottery Exploration instructor, Joyce Scalzo. They're mixed into the clay and applied in coil form onto the outside of the ball of clay. It is then made into a vessel. The piece becomes muddy looking and does not show the colors until it is leather hard. Only then, can it be scraped down to reveal the design and color. You will notice on some pieces that the color goes all the way through to the inside!
I hope you enjoy them. Prize includes 1 Free Pottery Class too!
