Northwest Art Center

Art in the Heart of Duvall

The Northwest Art Center enhances lives by teaching the value of art, ideas, expression and creativity through quality art education.
Creativity Corner
Creative learning is off to a great start with students of all ages here at the Northwest Art Center. Young artists have enjoyed drawing how they see sunflowers, pumpkins & botanical prints, experimented with print making on black paper, to learning how to draw eyes and splatter paint like Jackson Pollock.  

Students in our new digital arts program are developing skills in Photoshop and digital photography, learning how to tell a personal story in SWAY and the beginnings of using Adobe Illustrator for graphic design.
