Welcome to the Studios of Cocoa Beach...
sign up today for the buzz on Art, Workshops, Gifts, and Events
Covid-19 InformationFor the sake of all our artist's & patron's health, the Studios has temporarily closed our doors to do our part in stopping the spread of Covid-19. No new classes or workshops are being scheduled until further notice. The upcoming In Motion exhibit is being rescheduled. We will re-open when we are confident that this situation has passed and it is safe to go back to business as usual. We will communicate through our website and social media any updates as this evolves. We are thankful for your patronage and support and we will celebrate the arts with you all again soon. Take good care of yourselves and your families.
The Studios of Cocoa Beach, a non-profit 501c3 art cooperative, is a space dedicated to art, creativity, learning, and buzz. Since Fall 2016, the Studios has added its energy to Cocoa Beach's thriving dining, shopping and walking Downtown Main Street. The Studios hosts a diverse group of over 30 juried local and regional artists, whose varied mediums offer something for every art lover. We offer exhibitions, art classes for all ages and abilities, guest artists, opening receptions and special events...shop, create, learn and play with us! Run by a staff of dedicated volunteers, we appreciate the amazing support our artists and our community have given us.
Studios of Cocoa Beach is dedicated to mobilizing the diversity of the arts to inspire, educate and enrich the community through education, events, exhibits and outreach.
