The Grand Marais Art Colony

What started as an eight-week summer course has now prospered into the longest lived art colony in Minnesota. Since 1947, the Grand Marais Art Colony has been living up to its motto of “Nurturing Creativity on the North Shore.” Cultivating a relationship between outdoor inspiration and artistic pursuit, the art colony lets artists, experienced or not, step outside their comfort zone to create art that’s inspired by the wilderness on the North Shore and Lake Superior.


The art colony features year-round art classes including hands-on activities, artist talks and demonstrations, high-quality studio access, and outstanding events and exhibits. The facilities offered include visual arts, clay, glass, and print making studios. Several different instructors provide skills and expertise to make your time with them meaningful, while also providing you with a unique souvenir to bring home and show off to friends and family.


Classes are offered year-round to any person of interest.  A list of upcoming events can be found on their website here.
