Drop In to All About Art for Class, Special Events and More

1327 All About Art, Bald Head Island’s dynamic working studio and art gallery, invites you to drop by the next time you’re on the island to discover the latest artworks, workshops and special events.

Summer classes run from Monday-Friday beginning on June 10, and offer opportunities for children and adults of all ages and ability levels to express their creativity. A full schedule of summer classes is available online.


Back by popular demand this summer is the Mermaids & Dragons painting class taught by the ever-talented Lena Moschet. Betsy Nelson, another amazing artist, will be on the island for six weeks this summer to teach art camp at the gallery, and use her  considerable talents to personalize golf carts.

Also back by popular demand this season is "Wine"ing About Art, held every Thursday from 6-9 p.m. Bring your own bottle and enjoy a lively lesson from gifted oil painter Chappy Valente, while enjoying the company of fellow participants. Joanne Geisel, a talented landscape artist whose appears in the gallery, is also returning this year to offer oil painting lessons.

Full time island resident and photographer Patty Bonica is now available for family, wedding and pet photography commissions. Patty's energetic work truly captures the unique spirit of her subjects and her images can also be translated into a three-dimensional format, making for a one-of-a-kind memento.


Be sure to mark your calendar for a very special book signing by island resident Bart Astor on June 25 from 6-8 p.m. Bart's book The Road Map for the Rest of Your Life is an inspiring look at living life to its fullest after 50.

All About Art is also available for private lessons, private events and birthday parties throughout the year. We hope to see you in the gallery!
