South of the city of Sarasota is Venice in Sarasota County. This is a favorite spot for artists. Venice is known as the shark tooth capital of the world. All along the beaches you will see people hunting for sharks teeth in the froth of the waves hitting the shore.

Venice has a number of pretty beaches to paint. Casperson Beach at the very end provides the prettiest sunrise views. Long shadows from the palms go all the way across the beach to the sea. It’s stunning.

Any of the beaches are fun to paint and each has their own look and feel. Best of all each beach holds many paintings

Venice also has wonderful town views. This is America right here. Lots of happy people having fun, sidewalk cafes, theater, parks, and farmers markets are all in Venice for you to enjoy. There is always something going on in Venice but what Light Chasers love to do best in Venice is PAINT.

Venice Avenue has pink Italian Renaissance buildings, Mediterranean architectural influences, and wonderful Canary Island Date Palms lining the street. Venice is always adding new parks and bike trails and making the most of its natural beauty.

Venice has its own special vibe and it’s not to be missed when you visit the sun coast. About half of our Light Chasers live in Venice so this is a town that loves its artists and its art.
