Welcome to a New Season!

ArtCenter Manatee, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, prides itself on the quality and scope of art instruction offered in the Center in downtown Bradenton. Whether you’re 4 or 94, we have a class for you!

We have lots in store for the Fall Winter season which begins in September. Despite setbacks caused by COVID-19, we had a successful and safe summer program and are ready to cautiously and safely open classes for Fall. A selection of classes will only be offered online. Staff and instructors will be wearing masks or shields and we ask that you do, too for the safely of not only yourself but everyone you will encounter here. Some classes require masks for everyone’s safety WITH NO EXCEPTIONS – these are all marked. We will also practice social distancing, limit class size, and clean surfaces between each class to keep all of us safer.

Adult classes for new and experienced artists ages 16 plus* range from drawing and painting, watercolor, pottery, jewelry design, digital photography and much more. We will also offer online demos and classes for adults and children.

For children ages 6-10 we offer a robust AfterSchool program that features a different media every session. Classes will be 5-sessions each and will meet on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:00.

Highly qualified art teachers challenge students who range from beginners to advanced level abilities. To augment our regular instruction, the art center also brings in national and international award-winning instructors in a variety of fields for workshops and demos. Our staff is ready to serve you whether you are registering for a class, need a supply list or have a question. We’ll do our best to help.
