I've enjoyed all the classes I've taken at the Indianapolis Art Center. I've taken their photography, digital photography, drawing and many other courses. The instructors are all very passionate about their subject and do a great job providing feedback to the students. My family and I also enjoy visiting IAC when the broad ripple art fest is going on.

We pass through the art center a few times a month. There are a variety of changing exhibits at this museum. The hallways, main entry, special gallery and even the library are used to hold temporary exhibits. Some of the art is by students, some by faculty and some by local area artists. We always make it a point to... More

I give the Indianapolis Art Center an excellent rating because of the wide variety of art and craft educational experiences that are offered here all year round to all age groups. The center also offers a variety of rotating art exhibits and events including the excellent Broad Ripple Art Fair in the spring. The center is on a lovely property... More

A bit of a disappointment. There was only one hall of professional art. The rest of the building had the arts and crafts of children and amateur artists on the walls. It looks like an excellent school to learn how to draw and paint, but not much of an art museum.

What a cool place! The building inside (art school and exhibition center) had some very interesting and unique sculptures on display. Then walk out the back. Great outdoor sculptures and "The Twisted House". All of this in a beautiful setting with the White River flowing past. A surprise gem.

As is often the case with anything to do with the arts, it is probably a fact that most residents of the central Indiana area do not know it is here. Whether you paint, do photography, or create in any fashion they have classes and the facility that can make your experience with the arts a real treat. Check it... More

We were at the art show and toured the facility. The art studios are fantastic and the list of available classes were wonderful. I wish I was from this area to take advantage of this art center and certainly hope the locals do. The instructors seemed extremely talented. And the gardens were lovely. I do not know what it's like... More

The Indianapolis Art Center continues to be a destination for arts of all kinds. I have attended art shows, independent film premieres and music productions, both in the main building and on the grounds. The adjoining ArtsPark along the White River has several unique installations and is a wonderful place for a leisurely visit from Spring to Fall.
