About Us
Who we are & what we do...

Located in Pine City, MN, the Art Center has been serving the Greater Pine City area since 2009 with a variety of programming opportunities. As a non-profit, volunteer-led organization, our mission is simple: "The Arts for Everyone!" We strive daily to ensure that our community feels welcome in our facility - a gathering place for artisans and art-lovers alike - and that those we serve feel as though they are a part of a great organization that's committed to adding value to the community.

We are always seeking out new instructors and new ideas for classes that community members would like to see offered. Just contact us with your ideas!

WEEKLY LESSONS!

We provide weekly music lessons for students of all ages and skill levels. Currently we have instructors teaching piano and guitar.

FUN CLASSES!

We offer a variety of class opportunities each month to suit a variety of interests. SUPER SATURDAYs are a blast! Want a fun night out?! Come to a CREATIVE CANVAS! Painting + Wine & Snacks + Friends = FUN!

MONTHLY GALLERY EXHIBITS!

A space for local & regional artists to share their talents! Opening night exhibits held the 2nd Friday each month. Join us for "Art After Work" anytime we're open! See "Gallery" page for upcoming artist information.

SPECIAL EVENTS & SUMMER ARTS PROGRAM!

Experience the arts in a way that fits your interests - SPECIAL EVENTS held throughout the year. SUMMER ARTS = FREE classes for kids, grades K-6, to explore the arts with quality instruction!

Help us continue bringing the arts to our community,
and be rewarded in the process!

I LOVE the Art Center!

The Pine Center for the Arts is a welcoming place for both artists, whether seasoned or just starting out, and art-lovers, alike! It's such a blessing to have this resource in our community; it's been an incredible source of inspiration and fun in my life! They offer such an awesome variety of classes, and I love that I get to teach some of them, as a local artist, myself! They even offer FREE classes for our kids during the Summer, to boot! I can really tell how much this organization cares about the arts and making sure our community is always able to experience them in ways that suit a variety of interests - we're so lucky to have them!
