Very much enjoyed our visit. Really enjoyed the triptych paintings with each third painted by one of the three resident artists. Many individual paintings too and some nice art cards.

Went to an art show here one afternoon. Lovely paintings. They have a great gift shop where you can purchase art from local artists. They offer many classes.

Many different areas to get access
Oct 2019
You do have to search for access spots to the beach, they are plentiful in this area. Parking can be a problem in spots, but if you take the time to investigate you will find places to park. Beach is taken care of and you can walk for miles if you so desire.

Came upon this place by accident. Took a look around. Some people were working on their own art pieces. The ones displayed were quite impressive. Wish I lived here or was staying longer. This place would interest me.

Pottery classes

This place is really fun! I got a giant block of clay and can't wait to get back and create. The best part is can fit classes around your schedule and not have to pay for a series (I travel for work and would miss out).

After my visit to the public library nearby to use their computer, I enjoy visiting the art center and seeing so many interesting, beautiful pictures, paintings, etc. that helps me appreciate the talent displayed there.

A gem
Jan 2018 • Business
I visited the Center to give a lecture and was impressed by the facility and the level of student work in the main room/gallery. If you're in town for the winter, check out their classes. It looks like fun and you can sit on the beach all the time!

Local art - right off the beach

By visiting here, you get to see local artists. They hold special events (Surf & Skate contest) where all ages participate and they even host gatherings with food and drink.

A welcoming place to get those creative juices flowing
Nov 2016 • Couples
My husband and I visited the art center this past fall and immediately felt welcome and happy to be there. Mary, one of the instructor, was just finishing a watercolor class and gladly gave us the rundown on classes and exhibits as well as a brief tour of the center. Then she let us loose to view the exhibit on display at that time. What an amazing variety of work at all skill levels from local people in the beach area!. The art center offers classes and workshops for beginners and all levels. I visited again at Christmas and dropped in at the gift shop. I found a salad bowl made by a potter whose works I fell in love with. I immediately purchased the work as a gift for my husband.(He was awestruck.) The shop also has handcrafted jewelry, scarves as well as paintings, mixed-media items, and note cards. I highly recommend the Beach Art Center and its gift shop to you. So when you're in the beach area and it's a rainy day or your skin needs a break from more sun, why not drop by the Beach Art Center. It will make you feel happy, inspire you, and may stir up those creative juices. Or perhaps you may find a piece of local art reasonably priced that you can't live without and far better than anything seen in a souvenir shop. The Beach Art Center is just off Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach and accessible from the "Beach Bus" that goes up and down Gulf Boulevard from St. Peter to Clearwater Beach.
