The Art Center is closed these holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day.

The Art Center is closed two weeks each year: the week before Labor Day for cleaning and maintenance and the week from Christmas Day through New Year’s Day. Phone lines will be open these weeks, Monday-Friday, excluding holidays, from 9 am – 4 pm.

The Art Center follows the Orono Public Schools in regards to weather-related delays and closures.

We will do our best to post as early as possible the Art Center delays and closures on KARE11, KSTP, and WCCO, as well as via our website, social media and our out-going phone message.

Academic Calendar

Classes are available year-round. There are 8 sessions in the academic year. Each session runs for 8 weeks with the exception of Summer sessions which are 5 weeks. Registration and payment must be completed one week before a class starts. You will receive a confirmation email from the Registrar once your registration and payment have been received and processed.

The deadline for the Early Registration Discount (applies only to currently enrolled students) is always the fourth Saturday before a session starts.
