The Art Center also offers quality, low-cost education programs to both children and adults. Hands on Art, the After School Art Program, gives children the opportunity to explore their creativity, learn new skills while having a lot of fun. Summer Fun Camp for kids has a schedule of sessions from June through August.
For adults, a variety of workshops and social events are offered throughout the year. -- In addition to the visual arts, LAC is involved in the community and is home to the Lewistown Wood Carver's Group, the Community Labyrinth Garden, the Central Montana Community Concert Association and the Central Montana Writer's Group.
