Art can serve many different purposes, including physical and emotional therapy, self-expression, and simply leisure. The Rehoboth Art League (RAL) was founded 70 years ago as a place to bring people together to inspire, encourage, and sustain the spirit of art in the community.

The Rehoboth Art League is a center for exhibits of invited artists, as well as lectures, classes for all ages, and the enjoyment of the outstanding works in the league’s Permanent Collection. The RAL contributes to the regional economy by offering income for more than 750 artists through teaching and sale of their work. Art classes are held year-round for children and adults, from beginning to advanced levels. They are taught by local guest artists as well as nationally recognized artists. Classes offered at RAL include: drop-in sessions of pottery, sketching and printmaking for members as well as private lessons in painting, pottery and drawing. Other available courses include corkwork, jewelry, oil and water color painting.
