Arts Business Academy Graduation

Arts education is always a priority for the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance so we have a designated SPAA Education Committee that supports the activities of SPAA's key education initiatives through advocacy, program planning, and securing proper resources.

The work of the committee helps elevate educational programs that empower St. Pete residents of all ages as creatives, in work and in life. We elevate artists and arts professionals: increasing economic growth, cultivating community, and uplifting well-being.

  • Arts for Complete Education (ACE) promotes quality arts education in Pinellas County Public Schools.
  • The Funding Futures initiative is a grant program for student artists with financial challenges.
  • The Arts Business Academy is a six-week certificate course that provides creatives with the skillsets and confidence to build a thriving career. Throughout the year, the Arts Alliance offers free and low-cost seminars and workshops. Subscribe to our ArtBeat email newsletter, for updates. 

To support our education efforts, please consider making a donation today.
