The Alliance offers so much to choose from -- classes for children and adults, theater, painting, fiber arts, poetry and music -- it's hard to capture everything in one review! I highly recommend attending one of their free gallery openings, plays, or poetry events! My favorite events are the special events that they have each fall! If you like the... More

Alliance for the Arts puts on all kinds of programs -- the Indian festival, Pride festival, a Saturday farmer's market with lots of local farmers and vendors. They also do plays, art camps for kids, and have a great gallery and a small but really cool gift shop. Worth a visit, there's almost always something going on!

Coming to Fort Myers, I wondered what the arts culture was like. I was over-the-moon to find the Alliance for the Arts. Their exhibits are always interesting and thought-provoking. The gift shop is equally unique, filled with artsy items you'll want to buy up everything. Their art classes, studios- all top notch. I love to see what students and professionals... More

It's a great place to join, as it offers art classes, concerts, art shows, festivals on the lawn. If you live in the Ft. Myers area, it's a good value. Summer camps for the kiddos too!

The Alliance offers some of the best arts and crafts classes, and our teacher, Lucinda Hathaway , is one of the best! By the second day, we all were painting with a personal flair, using her creative tips, while having fun and producing some really exciting, good pieces of art! I've already invested another $50.00 to further my new Grandy... More
