Do you need a beautiful and inspiring space to practice your art? Do you enjoy the community of other artists for support and encouragement? There is no better place than the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum to continue your artistic journey! Set in the exquisite Edwin Lundee designed Tea Room, you will find inspiration inside and out all year around. As you gaze through the windows for one-of-a-kind observational nature opportunities. Maybe you will be inspired to draw with friends in the conservatory or take in a new display in the Great Hall. On chilly mornings a fireplace will provide the warmth needed to get those creative juices flowing. Whether you are just beginning or have been practicing your art for many years, everyone benefits from this supportive, welcoming environment.
