Community Art Programs

The Rumriver Art Center partners with many local community organizations to provide art education through classes and programs throughout the year. We have an ongoing partnership with the City of Ramsey for the "Art in the Park" series. The Rumriver Art Center has free art activity programs with the City of Anoka including Winterfest and Halloween events. We also work with the Anoka-Hennepin Libraries to offer free classes at your local library and the Anoka-Hennepin school district's "Wellness Day".  We are the resource for the North Metro art community.
