Community 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. We work with various county libraries to offer free classes at your local library. We are the resource for the north metro art community.
