The Rumriver Art Center is a nourishing environment for artists young and old to unleash their creativity. The art center offers art classes to homeschool, after school, and adult art students year-round. Classes include drawing, acrylic painting, watercolor, hand-built pottery/sculpture, art sketchbook/art history, and mixed media. We are the arts resource for the entire North Metro community and help students of all ages explore their creativity through the arts. The Rumriver Art Center is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.

Winter Weather Procedure

We follow the Anoka-Hennepin School District regarding canceling classes at Rumriver Art Center. The safety of all our students is the first priority when determining if we should stay open in extreme winter weather. We will make every effort to update our website and post to Facebook if we cancel classes due to weather as soon as possible once we see that the Anoka-Hennepin School District has closed or is closing early. To get information about class cancellations due to weather you can call Rumriver Art Center at 763-323-8830 or check media outlets including WCCO, KSTP, Fox 9, and Kare 11.
