The Anna Maria Island Art League is a not for profit visual arts organization and relies on the support of others to continue to provide the highest quality classes and events that enrich our community. We would like to thank individual donors, patron level members, businesses, corporations and foundations for their generous support this past year. Thank you for all your help, without our Members we wouldn’t exist! Our Art League appreciates everything you do for us!

Exhibitions, which are free to the community, and scholarships, which make the joy of art classes possible for children and adults who would otherwise be unable to afford them, require funding. Major cultural events like Winterfest and Springfest, our Fine Arts and Fine Crafts Festivals, have many sponsorship opportunities. You can support one or more of our exhibits, our fine arts and crafts festivals, or provide scholarship money by contributing directly to one of the following:

Sponsor an Exhibition

Your business may wish to sponsor one of our monthly exhibitions. Exhibition sponsorships range from $250 to $2,250. Please call the office for details and availability.

Sponsor Winterfest/Springfest

There are opportunities to show your company’s support of the arts by sponsorship of these juried art shows. Sponsorships are available at many levels and can be tailored to meet your company’s needs. Some opportunities include sponsorship of artist prizes, a children’s art exhibit, entertainment and more. Please call the office for details.
