Monroe Street Arts Center


OUr Mission is to engage a community of learners in exploring the arts and developing the creative self.

By providing high-quality private and group instruction to all ages, Monroe Street Arts Center is keeping the door open for a lifetime of creative expression and appreciation of the arts. MSAC is a welcoming, inclusive environment where we come together to learn, make, and share music and art. We cultivate a team of caring teachers who are first-rate artists and musicians, and create outlets for artistic expression through recitals, exhibits, and outreach opportunities.

A gathering of artists creates an energy unlike anything else — exciting, electric, sacred, and full of possibilities. Simply being in its presence is magical.

We know that what begins within these walls grows beyond us; encouraging those same spaces of imagination, discovery, and creativity throughout our community and into our world.

parents’ talk

Our children have taken several classes at MSAC and we have enjoyed every one. Classes are affordable and taught by friendly, professional staff. We have particularly liked the art class for the youngest set. A neighborhood asset!

My son loves camps here, and I hosted an adult art night that was a blast and very well-run. A gem of a place!
— Lisa G.
We love the Art Center. My son started taking art classes there at age 3, and it’s his favorite activity. The teachers are all great- very patient and helpful for the kids. I highly recommend MSAC for parents and kids.

As a single mom, the financial assistance program has been a blessing! It’s not easy being able to keep him involved in everything I’d like to, but that program has allowed me to keep him involved in one of the things he loves to do the most. Please keep doing what you’re doing, MSAC!
— Fawn C.
