Maitland Art Center

The Maitland Art Center (formerly known as The Research Studio) is a historic site in Maitland, Florida. It was founded and designed by architect and artist J. Andre Smith in 1937. It is located at 231 West Packwood Avenue. On November 17, 1982, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The Maitland Art Center offers a variety of art classes for adults and children. Most of the classes help fund the center, and carry a fee. The fee amount can be found at their website.

Because of the natural setting and the ornamentation of the buildings, the art center is a common location for outdoor weddings. The art center offers three areas for weddings: the Main Garden, the Chapel, and the Mayan Courtyard. The photographs on the website give a fairly good idea of what the three locations look like. The fee for weddings is also listed on the website.

There are a variety of events and exhibitions during the year that range from “free” to “membership only”. The official website does a fairly good job of describing the events.
