The Coastal Arts Center campus overlooks scenic Wolf Bay and offers many artistic experiences with a breathtaking view. The stunning 10,000-square-foot fine art gallery features a spacious two-story building displaying works by Gulf Coast artists. Our campus is also home to The Hot Shop, Alabama's premier hot glass blowing studio where you can make your own glass piece! Or, come play in the clay at our Clay Studio, where you can throw on the wheel or hand build your own creation. Adult art classes are available at various times of the year. The center cherishes its place in the rich history of our area while bringing new and innovative ideas in the arts -- all in a warm and welcoming environment of Southern hospitality. With our new facility and stunning grounds, we now also provide the perfect location for a destination wedding or special event. Check out our Facebook Page for the most recent photos of our new facility.
