Field Trips On and Off-Site

Looking for an art class for your organization? Take a field trip to Rumriver Art Center located in historic Anoka along the beautiful Rum River. Can’t come to us? We will come to you for an off-site class. Unleash your creativity!
We offer 90 minute classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, and more! One class has a max of 30 students and a minimum of 10 students (for example, if you have 90 students, we would do 3 class sessions). Class size may be adjusted based on the number of staff at your facility available to help in the class – we can discuss this with you!
Once you have booked your field trip we will discuss the specific project. If you’d like to see pictures of different projects we have done, please check out our Facebook albums (note: not all projects pictured can be done for a field trip class).

Other Terms and Conditions

Payments can be made by cash, check or bank transfer for no additional fee. If payments are made by credit card there will be a credit card processing/booking fee of 4.5% (subject to change as determined by our booking company) that is not applied to the fee charged by Rumriver Art Center. Field trips are non-refundable.

Classes must be booked at least 4 weeks in advance. Field trips are subject to studio space and teaching artist availability so schedule early! Our studio availability is always changing and we cannot reserve a date/studio without confirmation so prompt communication is required.

The minimum balance for 10 participants plus the $80 admin fee is required at the time of booking, no matter how many students end up showing up. The final number of participants is due 10 days prior to the class. If there are more than 10 participants, the total class fee will be adjusted for the additional individuals.
