About Sturgis Center for the Arts


"Our mission is to provide an environment of learning and appreciation of the arts."

Sturgis Center for the Arts was founded in 2004 and adopted this mission to support and expand the arts in our community. For our Board of Directors and managing team, this mission has always been the driving force behind our motivation and constantly evolving vision. We are pleased to offer a wide variety of art, music, theatre, and less-traditional arts programs to the vibrant Sturgis and Black Hills community; a community that was and continues to be our inspiration.

Great place to create art and learn music!

We've been taking art lessons from Erica and violin from Kelsey. What a wonderful community they are creating here. If you're in the area definitely consider it for your child's art/music education!
