SouthSideSchoolAnimCalling all artists! The moment we have been waiting for is here!

South Side Cultural Arts Center is finally on the map!  The newly renovated and much anticipated South Side School will be ready to rock again before the year is over. 

South Side School was built in 1922 as one of the first elementary schools in Broward County and served the community until 1990. It has recently been restored and is ready to serve South Florida’s cultural arts community.

With a touch of individuality and a splash of creativity, South Side Cultural Arts Center is here to serve you! South Side offers educational classes in the Culinary Arts, Visual Arts, Dance, Performing Arts, and Fitness. It will also host the community’s local and finest arts and photography exhibit. For those that need a spot to lounge, throw a birthday bash, or house a conference, South Side Cultural Arts Center also offers rental space.

South Side is your Cultural Arts destination. If you are a novice getting in touch with your creative side or an expert looking to expand your horizons, South Side Cultural Arts Center is awaiting you to explore and begin your artistic journey.
