Funtastic Art Camp students will need to bring their lunches for the first week of art camp.


Join us on Friday, April 29, for an early evening of great food, music, art and fun for all as we initiate our 1st Annual “Artful Bowls,” a Family-Friendly Supper to benefit North Port for the Children and the North Port Art Center.

And once you’re done dining and enjoying the entertainment, go home with one of our beautiful hand- thrown and hand-painted bowls created right here in our art center’s pottery studio by local artists.

The event includes bowl-friendly food (like stews, soups, mac & cheese, chili, and more) along with beverages and desserts. Each adult ticket buys you a great meal and one of our bowls.

We’re also planning live musical entertainment, an assortment of raffles, and opportunities to buy from our artist vendor booths. To keep the kids entertained, we’ll have a special kids’ art activity so adults can enjoy their meal and the music!

Drop in anytime on Friday, April 29, from 4 to 8 p.m.

Adult tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and include a meal and a pottery bowl. Children under 18 eat for $3/serving, with purchase at the door. (Bowl not included with children’s tickets.)

Tickets may be purchased at the Art Center in person or by phone, at 941-423-6460, or on our website.
