The Armory Art Center is a not-for-profit community-based visual arts education and exhibition center providing opportunities for individual growth, self expression, increased awareness and appreciation of the arts through participation in studio art classes, exhibitions, lectures and other educational programs. The Center seeks to educate, enrich and engage a diverse population through the "experience of art".

Since its founding in 1986 through the continual evolution and growth of an expanding campus, the Armory Art Center is an example of the community's commitment to establishing a public gathering place for the experience of seeing and creating art. The original Armory building was saved from demolition by artists, preservation activists, philanthropists and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council and has been recently renovated to provide students and guests new studios and redesigned gallery space.

With over a dozen state of the art studios, more than one hundred course offerings and an annual student population of nearly 3,000, the Armory Art Center is West Palm Beach's only community art center. Classes are offered in ceramics, jewelry, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and sculpture, with day and evening hours, both during the week and on Saturday.

Our Master Artist Workshop Series features twenty-five artists from around the United States and welcomes 400 participants each season. Youth programs are available throughout the year and the Armory prides itself on its unique Summer Art Camp which provides studio art activities for over 600 children each year, ages kindergarten through high school.
