Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find the Naples Art District?
It is easy to find us! The 70 working artists in the Naples Art District have their working studios on Shirley Street, just off Pine Ridge Road, J & C Boulevard off Airport Road and also there is one studio tucked among the many design studios on Trade Center Way and another on Yahl Street. Our interactive map on the website will enable you to find the Naples Art District and locate the artists working in a wide variety of media. For more information call 239-249-1977.
Can I walk from studio to studio? Is there adequate parking?
We recommend driving to the various studios as we are located in an industrial park without sidewalks and the studios are spaced out. Some studios are clustered together and some studio spaces are shared by several working artists. You will most often find open parking spaces adjacent to the studios.
Are there regular hours in the various artist studios?
Not all of our artists will be at work in their studios on a given day. Although some of our studios are open daily, often 1-4pm with artists at work, other studios and galleries are open only by appointment. Our NAD artists are always delighted to meet visitors wanting to see their artwork, so feel free to call for appointments to connect with any of our artist members.
Can I buy original art direct from the artists?
Do you offer art classes?
Yes! Art classes and workshops are available for all levels, beginner to advanced, in a wide variety of media. Whereas most classes and workshops are listed on our website calendar, some of our artists teach on-going classes on a weekly basis. Many classes are for adults but there are opportunities for every age participant. Check our website class calendar and visit the artist’s website pages for more information.
