Heart to Heart: Community of Caring

We are honored that Great River Health asked us to partner with them on something truly special. Patients staying in the Covid wing need something to brighten up their days. You can help in two ways: create a piece of artwork that can be hung in their rooms or donate money to be used for some art kits and supplies for the patients to use to pass time. Artwork donated can be from all ages and skill levels! Donations (art or money) can be dropped off to the Art Center Monday-Friday 10am-2pm and Saturday 12pm-4pm. This will be an ongoing project.


Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest

Get your spook on! Carve or paint a fab-BOO-lous pumpkin to enter our virtual contest. Add a photo of the pumpkin to our Facebook event with the participant’s name and age. Invite your friends and family to vote on your pumpkin! Those with the most votes win! Winners will be announced on Friday, October 30.

This is an all ages competition with a prize for each age range: 12 and under, 13 to 19, and Adult. Prize includes a family membership to the Art Center of Burlington plus a $25 gift certificate to the Art Center.


Rent Our Classroom

Our classroom is available for your budding artists! You can rent our classroom for $10 per hour and use supplies that we will set out for you! Supplies may include crayons, colored pencils, markers, construction paper, cardstock, glue, pom poms, foam, etc. Let the kiddos explore different art materials. It's about the process, not the product! Call the Art Center (319-754-8069) for availability.

If you are interested in a private paint or pottery party or kid birthday party, learn more about those here.

While you're here, do our Gallery Scavenger Hunt!

Giving kids an appreciation for art encourages exploration, self expression, logical thinking, self-esteem, imagination, and creativity. We’ve made up a fun little scavenger hunt for your family to do together at the Art Center! Just stop by the front desk anytime for the scavenger hunt.
