The Arts of Great Falls
Supporting an Artful Community is Our Mission.
The Arts of Great Falls (AGF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 2008 to encourage, support, and promote the fine arts in Great Falls and our surrounding communities. Located in the heart of Great Falls in the Village Centre, our popular fine art school attracts students from across the Washington metro area. We offer a wide range of adult classes in different mediums for beginning artists to professionals. Our youth program is based on the classic Atelier style of the 19th century masters for serious young artists. Every summer, we host camps for young artists 8-18 years of age. Our gallery space features rotating exhibits by local artists and we lease studio space to 12 artists in our two group studio spaces: The Artists’ Atelier and The Artists’ Loft. Throughout the year, we host community arts events, including 1st Friday Art Walk and the annual Paint Great Falls Plein Air competition.
The Arts of Great Falls manages two artist studios. The Atelier has seven artists (pictured) and The Loft has five artists.
