 Welcome to the Ocean City Center for the Arts, the destination for all
things art in the Ocean City community. Home of the non profit Art
League of Ocean City,  our newly built bayside facility features a
spacious two story gallery, a pottery studio, classrooms, art library
and five working artist studios. The galleries display new exhibits of
regional and local artists monthly, some of whom are Art League of Ocean
City members. 

 
Exhibits kick off with an opening reception from 5-7PM on the first
Friday of each month.  The receptions, as with all of our activities,
are open to the public. In addition, we offer workshops for artists of
all ages and skill levels, a summer art camp program and community
events like our Plein Air Painting Competition and Sand Castle Home
Tour. Affordable community meeting space, with beautiful views of the
bay, is available for rent for your next gathering.

 

The Center for the Arts owes its success to many dedicated Art League
of Ocean City members and volunteers who give of their time and talents.
We welcome you to  join our team and get involved.  Whether you are an
artist or simply an art appreciator, visit The Ocean City Center for the
Arts and be inspired.

Drawing Boot Camp with David Simpson
Art League of Ocean City
This will be a five class series that focuses on and will tackle the foundation to 2-D art, composition. By definition in art, composition is the arrangement of visual information in a picture plane; it is equally defined as how artist organize the elements of art via the use of principles of design. Building your own composition is the true fundamental authentic artistic experience. Not only is taking ownership in your composition essential for originality, it is one of the greatest opportunities in the art making experience to build your confidence. It is important to know that art students are NOT required to attend all sessions. Obviously the more class in this series you attend, your understanding and ability in creating composition will be stronger. Any knowledge and experience in composition is beneficial; therefore, please come and join this great drawing opportunity any week you can attend. This series will include and address a variety of compositional topics and rules. Finally, Art History will be tied into each lesson to strengthen the concepts learned.
Bring your own supplies and we will supplement. Each month will focus on a new and exciting topic!
 
Lesson 1: May
This class is designed to be an introduction to color theory. The introduction will include the main groups of color schemes and their relation to the color wheel. Historical painters will be featured as references in this class. After the introduction, students will develop their own abstract drawing in order to focus on emphasis in applying a specific color scheme. Markers will be provided and utilized as the primary color media for this lesson. Students are welcome to bring their own color media of choice if they prefer.
