New Drawing Class Just for Adults!

The Blackfoot Art Center has added an Adult Drawing & Sketching class to our schedule. This class will be held on Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 pm. 

Can't draw a straight line? You don't need to -- no need for rulers in this class!  All you need is a desire to learn to draw, practice your new skills, and have fun! If you are unable to attend this morning class, we also have a Tuesday evening open studio class for adults at 6:30 to 8:30 pm. As an option, you can attend this class and receive the same basic drawing instruction. Both classes are pay-as-you-go, only $10 per 2-hour class. 

You are never too old to learn how to draw, so why not give it a try! No need to pre-register or bring anything special - we have everything you'll need to get started. 

If you would like more information about the Blackfoot Art Center, please visit our new website at It is currently a work in progress, so check back often for updated information!

We've Moved!

We've moved to a great new location in downtown Blackfoot! It wasn't easy; a lot of renovation was needed and it took longer than planned,  but it was so worth it! We're now up and running in our bright, spacious new facility.

Although our signage is not yet installed, you'll find us at 73 N. Broadway. Drop in during Open House through June 12th and take a look! Pick up a schedule of summer classes and let your kids hang out in the Creative Thinking Area and Open Art Studio while you fill out a quick survey. We want to know what we can offer you and your family. We have free refreshments and summer class registration forms. Sign up for a class or two. Would you like to teach an art class or a craft? Why not teach it at the at the art center? We are also looking for volunteers to help with children's classes and to promote the visual arts in other ways. Earn free studio time and/or discounts on classes.

This Thai elephant art, (from is just one of the projects we are doing in our new "Arty Animals" class, offered on Mondays from 3-4:30 pm (ages 6-11). This is Keyanna and her Thai Elephant.
