Since 1977, the Edina Art Center has been quite a discovery for Edina residents. Located in Rosland Park, Susan Tarnowski, general manager at the Edina Art Center, says “Oftentimes people find [the center] while they are out on a walk, it’s a discovery in the park.” The EAC’s mission is to display excellent art, as well as educate people about different kinds of art. And Tarnowski is most certainly educating artists on new mediums.
“We’re trying to offer a broad mix of experimentation classes.” Tarnowski says. “Running a workshop with new mediums gives people a chance to do something they’ve never seen before.”
Felting, meditative art and digital photography are just some of the new courses offered at the center. “We began a less expensive program with fiber,” Tarnowski says. “The artists can create felted vessels, vases, table runners … It’s an amazing medium to work in.”
With classes for young children to family programs to advanced courses, there’s something for everyone at the Edina Art Center. The EAC also offers free community events, such as its monthly author series and juried exhibitions—both of which occur this month.
