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 Spring Summer season which begins in June. Despite setbacks caused by COVID-19, we are ready to cautiously and safely open select classes. 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. Please know when you register though that there may be some students that will not wear a mask. 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, pastels, watercolor, pottery, jewelry design, digital photography and much more. We will also offer online demosĀ  and classes for adults and children.

For children ages 4-6 we offer Sprouting Arts, for children 6-10 we offer Marvelous Mondays and KidsArt, and for 11-15 year olds, we offer Emerging Artists.

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.
