EDUCATING & INSPIRING ARTISTS SINCE 1979!

Welcome to Dakota Art Center, the educational branch of Dakota Art Pastels and Dakota Art Stores. We are located near the town of Mount Vernon, an hour drive north of Seattle, Washington.

Our facility is nestled in the pastoral and picturesque Skagit Valley, just minutes outside Mount Vernon and near the historic village of La Conner. The naturally beautiful and varied landscape is a great inspiration for both regional and nationally renowned instructors and artists. We have exceptionally spacious classrooms and art materials on site at our retail store. The largest selection of pastels in the world is in the adjacent Dakota Pastels warehouse and open to workshop attendees - a pastel artists delight!

Great instructors, exceptional facilities and beautiful surroundings will make a Dakota Art Center Workshop an experience sure to fulfill your expectations!

WHY TAKE A WORKSHOP
(with thanks to Lisa Ober!)

Taking a professional workshop is the single best way to immerse yourself in a medium and learn about its possibilities. It's also a wonderful way to study with an artist whose work you enjoy. Workshops help you consider new approaches and pick up new skills that you can apply to your own work, all with plenty of personal attention and a ton of fun! Sure, it's a concentrated and focused few days, but it will pay dividends in your future artistic endeavors.

Workshops help you:
• Sharpen your professional painting skills by learning how another professional approaches painting
• Pick up new tricks, tips, and skills to make your art sing 
• Get reacquainted with your love for making art in a friendly and encouraging environment
• Learn new things about working with pastels (and other mediums) whether you are a novice or an expert
• Make new friends with a common interest
• Walk away with new ideas on how to approach your next pastel masterpiece
