Despite being closed to the public, the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art is still teeming with inspiration. The Tequesta-based nonprofit is doing its part to bring art to us.

Art fans of all ages can view free special exhibitions virtually, such as the annual “Best of the Clubs” show, which features pieces by residents from Palm Beach to Stuart. Live-streamed art classes are also available via the school’s website, with topics ranging from ceramics and drawing to painting and jewelry-making. Proceeds from the classes will go toward paying instructors and perpetuating the organization’s mission to connect the community through art. Registration for the virtual classes is currently open.

Creative outlets are key to making it through quarantine. “Never have the arts been more important to the well-being of our society,” says Janeen Mason, the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s curator. “You’ll be inspired by our Lighthouse ArtCenter community that is still engaged and encouraging each other through creativity.”

The Lighthouse ArtCenter is inviting artists to share their at-home projects by uploading photos to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the tags @lighthousearts, #LighthouseArtCenter, and #LACbettertogether.
