Since 1947, the Art Colony has offered a creative retreat for the novice to professional artist to learn from renowned instructors, receive mentored guidance, and engage in critical artistic dialogue within a supportive atmosphere. Artists develop work and find support in a variety of ways, including through artist-in-residencies, classes, conferences, and access to the Art Colony’s professional vstudios (pottery, glass, jewelry, print & two-dimensional).

The Art Colony also hosts several annual events for artists and art appreciators alike to participate in, including the Grand Marais Arts vFestival, Plein Air Grand Marais, and Tour d’Art, a home tour fundraiser.

Let the Art Colony be your pathway to exploration and inspiration within a pristine landscape, uninterrupted by the bustle of daily life.
