Art Education

This page provides a general overview of the kinds of art classes offered at the Port Aransas Art Center. Art classes for all ages are held year-round. “Drop-in” classes do not require advance registration.

All exhibitions open on “First Friday” – This popular monthly event is held on the first Friday of each month starting at 5:30 p.m. It is free to all and includes refreshments, live music, great art, and artists! Guests are invited to enjoy the latest works of art on view, and they sometimes vote on artwork favorites.  Participating artists are encouraged to attend this as it is the official opening of the month’s exhibition.
