We are a nonprofit educational arts organization offering year-round creative programs for children, families, and adults. We cater to all ages and ability levels in a supportive, relaxed environment that is focused on individual learning and success. We create classes that encourage creative exploration through meaningful connections and discoveries. 

Arts Without Walls (ArtsWOW)

ArtsWOW program provides arts and music programs in the community, beyond our studio walls. Below is a snapshot of the ArtsWOW program. In 2014-2015, we provided over 1,500 hands-on art and music experiences for adults, youth and families in the Grand Traverse Region.

Programs / Workshops/Outreach

Through a number of community partnerships, we are able to provide high quality arts and music programming beyond our studio walls. Below are examples of how ArtWOW reaches a wide audience. 

Art Rapids! 

Stand A Part Arts held sculpture workshops youth and teens in 2014 and a summer art camp in 2015 to create a community clay mural in the Walk of Art Sculpture Park.

Grand Traverse Pavilions

Stand A Part Arts offered residents clay handbuilding workshops and a watercolor workshop during 2015.


Stand A Part Arts partners with SEEDS on many projects, ranging from art enrichment after school as far away as Manistee and Brethren. For the last two years, we’ve partnered to create the Quest; a summer camp theater/art/music/performance intensive with SEEDS and Earthwork Music.
