Classes & Events

Get up close with TAP artists, learn new skills, expand your art collection... At TAP, we have year-round programs that offer joy and inspiration.


First Fridays

Join us from 6-8 pm the first Friday of each month as we welcome our artists and celebrate the opening of our latest exhibitions. Chat with TAP artists and staff about what’s new as you sip and snack at Bainbridge Island’s art-iest party in town!


Artist's Insight

It’s a standing date! At 12:30 pm on the first Saturday of each month, you’ll learn what makes successful artists tick as they demonstrate their craft and/or talk about their process and inspiration. You won’t have a better opportunity to get up close and personal with one of our amazing creative virtuosos. No reservation is necessary, and it’s always free. We will see you there!


Perfectly Perfect Sale

Need a little more art than you can fit into your budget? Never fear, the Perfectly Perfect Sale—formerly known as Almost Perfect—is here! Artists clear out their studios to make room for new work, and that means you get amazing deals that benefit artists, TAP, and you! Our gallery will be filled to the brim—come early and come often to discover new treasures! Starting in 2018, our sale is slated for fall. Sign up for our eNews, and you’ll be the first to know when we have a date.


Paint Out Winslow

You can do it in the rain! You can do it in the shade! You can do it in the sun! No, you don’t get paid, but you do have the chance to win some cash and art supplies from our generous sponsors. This annual plein air event encourages artists of all ages and abilities to paint outside from Saturday morning to Sunday at noon, all over Bainbridge Island. And it is free!

Our summer 2018 date is July 28-29. We meet for coffee Saturday morning and then head out for the day to paint. (Or draw, or collage—all mediums are welcome.) 

Sunday afternoon our judges will award prizes in both amateur and professional categories, and we’ll have a party to celebrate!
