Creative Arts Center
The former First Lutheran Church on Main Street is providing much needed space for creative endeavors we're hoping to bring to the Battle Lake community.
Options include rooms for classes, meetings, culinary, working, and creating; as well as, open areas for dancing, exercising, performing, and socializing—the possibilities are countless. There are spaces for hosting large functions as well as intimate gatherings for purposes to inform, educate and to entertain. This new center will be transformative both for Art of the Lakes as well as the community-at-large. We're always looking for new faces interested in helping us bring this dream to life.
Discounts on workshops and performances throughout the year and so much more are reasons why you and your family should belong to Art of the Lakes.
