About the Foundation

The Arts of Great Falls (AGF) Foundation is a non-profit organization, founded in 2008 to encourage, support, and promote the fine arts in Great Falls and our surrounding communities. Located in the heart of Great Falls in the Village Centre, our popular art school attracts students from across the Washington metro area; and, from June through August, we hold a summer camp for young artists 8-18 years of age. During the school year, we offer adult fine art classes from beginners to professional artists. We also provide gallery space for local artists to exhibit and affordable studio space to 12 artists at The Artists’ Atelier and The Artists’ Loft. Throughout the year, we host community arts events, including 1st Friday ArtWalk and the annual Paint Great Falls Plein Air competition.

Supporting an artful community is our mission.
