Education & Community Programs

School Partnerships

Highpoint has partnered with diverse Minnesota schools and other organizations since its founding in 2001. Highpoint serves young artists in Kindergarten and up; 70% of these schools come to Highpoint at no or low cost, thanks to the generous funders of our education and community programs. Highpoint serves students from all backgrounds who have little or no previous knowledge of printmaking, and may not have arts programming in their schools. Highpoint provides students with professional instruction, tools, and equipment to create hand-made prints all their own. The classroom at Highpoint is a place for people of all ages and backgrounds to explore and trust their artistic strengths through the incredibly versatile medium of printmaking.

Schools with visual art programs rely on Highpoint to broaden students’ knowledge of printmaking in a professional studio setting. With a large classroom studio, professional atmosphere, and high quality materials and equipment, Highpoint offers a place where these young emerging artists create work, grow and thrive.

Highpoint works with educators to tailor class options to fit specific curriculum needs, budget, and schedule. Activities are organized by learning levels that are flexible, and presented to provide a general guideline. Class complexity and challenge increases with the age of visitor.


Most classes occur within a 2-hour timeframe at Highpoint, though special project options will require more time at Highpoint in order to complete.

If you are an educator or organizer looking for more information on partnering with Highpoint please visit our Schedule a Class page and contact Tyler Green, Education and Community Programs Manager, at 612.871.1326 or email us.
