Visit the Art Speaks Gallery at the Bay School and Explore the Art of Virginia!

In our gallery, you will find paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media; drawings in pencil, charcoal, colored pencil, and pastel; photography on paper, metal, and canvas; sculpture in wood, metal, clay, and found objects; pottery both functional and decorative; jewelry to fit any style and budget; glass both stained and fused; and unexpected surprises, all hand-crafted here in our beautiful region of Eastern Virginia.

At the Bay School Community Arts Center, we strive to Find the Artist in You through our gallery, our art classes, our outreach programs, and our pottery studio.

We offer over 100 specialized art classes each year, to children and adults, in a wide variety of media, for all skill levels.

Our arts outreach programs provide art-making experiences to 17 groups of individuals who have limited access to the arts.

As home to the newly formed Clay by the Bay potters’ guild, you are likely to find happy potters at work in our studio when you drop by.

Whether you enjoy making art or just like to take it in, there is something for you at the Bay School.
