On August 5, 2015, we signed up the kids for the drawing class at this place. The 7-year old initially did not want to take this class, but soon changed his mind when he saw the other boys in class. Our 6-year old girl was the one who was very excited about it. The receptionist was friendly; the same is... More

Fabulous studios and assortment of classes. I purchased a bracelet made by one of the artists in their little gift area . They have large equipment for printing.

Art Colony has workshops, classes, art instruction and art shows. So much to do and see for artists and art appreciators. Besides the Art Colony there are galleries and great restaurants in Grand Marais.

Sadly we went to this at the wrong time of year so a bit of an unfair review. But I think it's worth mentioning that it's probably a good idea to check their website ahead and go when they have classes or workshops. Very nice woman did a bit of an intro of what they do at the site. I... More

Would definitely return in future. Be sure to book motel in advance since this whole area gets SOLD out of rooms during summer months. CREATIVE place and very inspirational.

A historic and important institution run by wonderful people who give artists time and space to do creative work. Be sure to stop by the gallery and store too!

A very beautiful setting along the shore of Lake Superior. A cozy little town with the tourists in mind. Since I don't buy art any more we went for the food. And it was terrific.

This is a working art studio and on the Saturday I visited, classes were going on and there were several painters on the grounds outside. They have some art for sale in the gift shop which I thought was very reasonably priced and helps support the studio. Well worth the walk up the hill from Main street and you should... More

Many small shops to peruse. Visit art galleries, great restaurants, and fun shops. Ate the BEST smoked fish since starting the Circle Tour.
