Rehoboth Art League (RAL), founded in 1938, is a 1,100 member arts organization with the mission to teach, inspire and encourage the artistic spirit in the region. Its founding members were artists and art educators who provided art education to children and adults during the summer months. Our location in Henlopen Acres in the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware area, RAL provides free access to its 3.5 acre campus comprised of art galleries, educational classrooms, and historic buildings, such as the Peter Marsh Homestead. Activities and programs embrace diverse cultural, age, disability and socioeconomic groups.
In 2015, the RAL added a satellite location on Rt. 9 in Lewes, DE. The RAL Art Studios on Route 9 provides over 6,000 square feet of space and houses four artist studios for an artist in residency program; two large classrooms for drawing, painting, and mixed media art classes; a media arts center housing equipment for photo editing, printing, and graphic design; two galleries – including a Members’ gallery; a multi-purpose space for additional classes, a gallery, or meetings; and office space. This satellite location affords the RAL a greater opportunity to serve our growing community’s artistic needs.
In the past 72 years, the RAL has expanded its programs to include year-around art education, exhibitions, and open studios in a variety of art mediums. Over the years, artists from the novice to the professional come to the RAL to develop their skills or to share their experience with others. The RAL is a contributor to the local and regional economy by offering income for over 750 artists through teaching and sale of their work. In addition the RAL draws tourists to the region to participate in the master level education classes and the open studios, see the exhibits, and engage in our summer events.
