Art Center Sarasota offers creative opportunities that are affordable and accessible to the entire community with curated and juried exhibitions, classes, workshops and educational programs for youth and adults plus special events each year.

The Art Center is a member-based organization that engages the entire artistic community by providing educational programs and exhibitions for the novice to accomplished artists and those who simply enjoy the visual arts.

Youth programs such as the Creative Kids Summer Art Camp and Creative Kids Saturday Classes nurture young, developing minds. The youth outreach program, Slice of Art, has grown immensely over the years. This program, an interactive experience for students K-12 is fully subsidised by grants and donations with no cost to the schools. It has become a valuable tool for arts educators.

Art Center Sarasota relies on a corps of dedicated Volunteers to assist with everything from fundraising to exhibitions and supporting the staff in many ways.
