2022 Kids Summer Art Camp

Camps are filling up – register today!

Rumriver Art Center is offering over 50 Kids Summer Art Camps in 2022. The camps provide a stimulating environment for young artists to grow as creative, unique individuals and to learn how to solve problems visually. Campers get to work on a variety of fun projects and participate in the joys of making art with friends, experimenting with painting, drawing, mixed-media, sculpture, and much more! Each camp has a new focus so students that enroll in multiple sessions encounter all new studio projects.

Road Construction Affects Getting to Rumriver Art Center

There is major road construction that has begun along Highway 10 this spring and summer, including the tear down and rebuilding of the 4th Ave bridge just south of the art center. This will significantly affect getting to Rumriver Art Center due to road closures, detours and traffic delays on Highway 10 and nearby roadways. We encourage participants to plan ahead and give themselves plenty of time to reach the art center. A quick look at www.511mn.org is also helpful for a look at current traffic conditions. Please visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy10-anoka/ for more information.
