The Pasco Fine Arts Council is the Local Arts Agency for Pasco County. We have served Pasco County since 1978. We are specifically known for our teaching staff and small class sizes. We offer classes in watercolor, oil, acrylic, colored pencil, hand build pottery as well as the wheel. We sponsor several workshops during the year, approximately 5 art exhibits and competitions, and various other cultural opportunities.
We partner with the Pasco Parks Department, the WP Audubon Society, Daughters of Penelope, and Pasco Elementary Schools for various outreach programs we co-sponsor each year.

The Pasco Fine Arts Council is the Local Arts Agency for Pasco County and have been in existence since 1978. Over the years, we have taugh many students who have become fine artists in their own right. Our moto is to provide "fine" art instructions. We usually try to keep our classes small (8-10) students in order for the instructors to be able to work on a one-to-one basis with each student but still have the social and artistic interaction between students.

We try to discover the level of experience a new student might have and their interest in the mediume they wish to pursue.
Once that has been established we can place them into the right class. We provide beginning, intermediate, and advanced painting in each medium.
All of our instructors have been trained in the arts and are award winning artists themselves.
Our standard pricing is $70 (for members for a 5-week (1 day per week for 5 weeks) class session ($75 for non-members)
Pottery Students will purchase their clay & glazes from their instructor (Approx. $20 to get started). A charged a $5 fee/session will be added to the cost of the class for firing.
Each instructor has had their own story as to how they began teaching art.
We have had students from ages 5 1/2 to 101. Many of our adult students have gone on to becoming fine artists in their own right and have won many art competitions and sold their work to the public. Some students have even become signature members of both watercolor, oil, and drawing state competitions. Many of our past children students have been accepted to art schools such as the Wringly School of Art in Sarasota, the California School of Art, etc.
