At the Dunedin Fine Art Center, we strive to make art an all-encompassing experience! We want the community to not only be able to enjoy art through our curated exhibits, but we want them to have endless opportunities to explore a new medium and uncover some hidden talents too! We are proud to offer numerous classes at both the youth and adult levels, so there is something for everyone.
Browse our extensive list of adult and youth classes and workshops below, check out our amazingly talented instructors, or sign up for a class and start experiencing the arts!
Our current plan is to resume classes for children, teens and adults, on a limited basis, with our Summer I session, which starts the week of June 1st.
There is a lot of information here about the health & safety protocols we are putting in place to help keep everyone safe & healthy. Please take time to read all of it!
The overriding factor is, that DFAC at a minimum follows City, County and State guidelines. This means, that you will most likely know about changes in the same time frame that we do. We WILL keep this page updated, so please check back, if you have any concerns. : )
What we can tell you is what DFAC has been planning. When DFAC shutdown and cancelled 12 weeks of revenue generating classes, laid off staff and reduced skeleton crew salaries in March, we started to work on adjustments to classes so that when we were able to open, we would be ready. Below is a list of some of the steps that have been addressed:
– Classes have maximum attendance reduced to 9 students. This allows for 1 instructor for a max total of 10
– Studios set up with individual tables/chairs following 6ft social distancing spacing
– Staff/Instructors/assistants wear masks (provided by DFAC)
– Touchless thermometers at 3 main entrances and everyone (all ages) entering the building will be required to wear a mask (not provided by DFAC)
– Hand sanitizing at three main entrances.
– CDC signage
– Studios have sinks/soap/water
– 6ft spacing reminders throughout the building on floors and stanchions
– Sanitizing of “high touch” areas regularly throughout the day
– Cleaning/Sanitizing between class sessions
– Nightly “deep cleans”
We want to do the best we can with keeping everyone Happy and Healthy at all times at DFAC .
Stay safe, healthy and creative!

We realize that life gets busy and sometimes you might not be able to commit to a regular class, which is why we offer workshops. Our workshops are offered every weekend throughout the year and during the week at select times. We offer a variety of workshops such as clay, drawing, fiber arts, painting and more, so wherever your interests lie, we have something for you.
Through the arts, children learn to think creatively, build confidence, hone their ability to focus, are challenged to solve problems and much more! That’s why we’re proud to offer classes for children and teens, starting as young as 4 ½ years old. All of our classes offer different variations of drawing, painting, clay. henna, computers, photography and more.
