Our Mission

The Glen Arbor Arts Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching community life through the arts.

Classes

GAAC offers diverse and exciting classes for all skill levels. Some are taught in the center of Glen Arbor, tucked away in our wooded location. Others are taught in the beautiful pastoral setting of Thoreson Farm, located in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Our instructors have impressive credentials and extensive teaching experience. We have a generous scholarship program for persons who qualify; please inquire.

Events

You don't have to be a creator to benefit from the arts. Research shows that exposure to painting, dancing, singing, writing, and theater is good for our emotional well being. GAAC invites you to appreciate and benefit from the creativity of others all year long through our diverse events.

Exhibits

The GAAC galleries offer year-round exhibits using the visual, performing, written, and spoken arts as a way to explore a range of ideas. Companion programs – artist interviews, art history talks, classes, theater performances, music, poetry — round out each exhibit and offer dynamic opportunities to dig deeper into a theme and to explore it from many unexpected angles.
