Note that for 2021 classes masks or shields may be required in our studio classrooms. The Art Colony is assessing practices one class at a time. Masking may be required for any of the following reasons:
- The Art Colony is an educational institution hosting various age groups, including students who may be too young to get a vaccine.
- Art Colony classes are in intimate settings, in close proximity for several hours at a time and variants and uncertainties still exist around the spread of COVID-19.
- Some students or instructors may have underlying conditions preventing them from getting vaccinated, and COVID-19 can still be carried and contracted by those with a vaccine, causing spread to unvaccinated populations.
- For all of the above reasons, the Art Colony will set the practice of each class individually, requesting students and instructors to offer if they are vaccinated or not by way of making the class experience most successful for everyone.
The health and safety of our community, students and visiting artists is of upmost importance. Thanks for doing your part.
For Fall of 2021, there will be no after-school youth classes. We are working with local artist, Melissa Wickwire, to support a ceramics project with 5th – 6th graders in the County.

The Art Colony hosts intensive classes with instructors who are practicing studio artists and college and university faculty from May – September. Instruction covers a broad spectrum of media including: ceramics, drawing, literary arts, painting, printmaking, and sculpture, among others. The Art Colony’s mentor series is also a perfect way for advancing and mid-career artists to receive mentored guidance on their works-in-progress.
Due to COVID-19, the Art Colony has implemented new safety protocols for all classes. Requirements include: limited class sizes, physical distancing, and mandatory masks. Students will receive further information upon registration. We continue to practice under the evolving guidelines of the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health.
