About Us
The Art League at Ocean Reef was founded in 1976 dedicated to the advancement of the
cultural climate for creative arts in the Ocean Reef community. The Art League began in a
small trailer on Barracuda Lane and evolved to the current building on Anchor Drive in 1986.
The need to expand and renew the facility came about when membership grew to over 600
strong. The new building opened its doors to the Ocean Reef Community on November 3,
2008.

The Art League promotes a sense of community for Ocean Reef by offering a wide variety of
classes, workshops, lectures, trips and art exhibits. We have offerings for those who have no
previous art experience and for those who are working at an advanced level. Many of our
members began their art experience in one-day workshops and now take advanced level
classes.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To develop the Art League as a strong, vibrant organization that is
non-profit but adequately funded to accomplish all its goals.
We work to promote active participation in our community to achieve
focus on the arts as an important segment of the cultural community.
