A division of Ringling College Continuing Studies, the Englewood Art Center (EAC) focuses on education, exhibitions, and events. EAC serves as a nexus for artists and audiences to inspire creativity, exchange ideas, endorse imagination, and encourage creative growth. In addition to four galleries for exhibitions, we house two 2D studio classrooms, a ceramics studio, a digital media studio, and a lending library. Classes are offered onsite at EAC in south county Sarasota.
