When you join Art League of Hilton Head, you become part of an organization that shares your passion for art and learning–and your love of community.


For almost fifty years, the nonprofit Art League of Hilton Head has been the Lowcountry’s creative core for the visual arts with our innovative Gallery, teaching Academy and special community art events.

Art League sponsors satellite galleries, hosts the Gullah show and brings both traditional and cutting-edge works to our island with CraftHiltonHead, the Biennale National Juried Art Exhibition, special events, lectures, classes, workshops and so much more.

We award an annual scholarship to a local graduating High School senior to pursue a career in the visual arts in addition to sponsoring programs with local schools.

We partner with arts and cultural nonprofits and businesses to benefit residents, visitors and the artists who enrich our community.




Art lover, artist or collector, you’ll find the best local art at our spacious gallery located inside Arts Center of Coastal Carolina – a venue for viewing, buying, and displaying two and three dimensional artworks and jewelry by local artists.

Choose from original oils, acrylics, watercolors, drawings, pastels, photography and mixed media. Or select from our hand-crafted jewelry, fiber arts, baskets, woodworking, pottery, ceramics and sculpture.

Come to our opening receptions and meet the artists. Every month brings a complete change of show along with a premiere of new works by featured artists. Check our online calendar or call 843.681.5060 for the schedule of events.

My daughter and I signed up for the beading class and we had a ball! Our instructor, Linda was so friendly and easy to learn from. We walked away with bracelets that looked like we bought them from an upscale boutique. This is a unique souvenir of our trip that both of us will treasure forever. In addition, the folks at the Art League, Janice and Amy, were so welcoming as well. Amy helped us sign up online before our trip via the website and all we had to do was show up. We did the class in the morning and met up with the family for our beach plans in the afternoon. It is worth checking out!
