Artworks In Big Rapids Teaches With Creativity

A community fixture in Big Rapids is working to keep art and creativity at the forefront! 

Artworks features studio spaces, a gift shop, classrooms and a gallery that is open to the public.

The gallery brings in exhibits from around the world.

Students who study at Artworks can learn everything from painting to glass bead making.

A main cornerstone of the organization's mission statement is to keep education mixed with creativity a priority.  

“It helps with our operation costs and this year we have a special twist we are throwing in there with raising some funds for the roof that needs to be replaced so its vital to the continuation of our business and the operations of this organization,” said board member Allison Kiawatowski.
 Artworks also takes field trips around Northern Michigan, and has exhibits and other events.
