The ClearLakeArtsCenter is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization with the mission of igniting the creative spirit in the visual, performing and literary arts. With the help of our membership and the community “We connect thousands of area children with the arts each year through our workshops, parties, and after-school programs. With their support we are able to provide a positive and enriching space for young people to creatively express themselves.
Located in beautiful downtown Clear Lake, Iowa, the Arts Center is a unique and engaging facility with several art galleries, a gift shop hosting the work of local artists, studios for adult and children art programs, workshops and classes, a performing arts wing with monthly scheduled events for the community and visitors to enjoy.
Relying on the support of our membership, our non-profit organization is a North Iowa cultural, social and economic resource that provides a space where everyone is welcome to browse, to be inspired, to create, to discover, to explore, to learn, to practice, to perform, to observe and to innovate.
