The Arts MillThe Arts MillContact: Paula DeStefanis
Welcome to the Arts Mill Gallery & Boutique. The Arts Mill is situated in the historic Grafton Mill and houses more than fourteen artists’ studios. These working studios (located on the 2nd floor) are nestled around a central boutique which features a variety of unique items from local and regional artists.
We are open for events and private parties on our beautifully renovated 3rd floor. Please contact Paula. We work in collaboration with the North Shore Academy of the Arts, a non-profit organization (located in Grafton, WI) offering programming in the visual, literary and performing arts.
Ten years ago, North Shore Academy of the Arts (NSAA) began in a quaint space in an old mill next to a river. Three rooms, a hand-built stage, and a few classes. As the years went on, offerings in the visual, performing and literary arts grew, offering quality enrichment programming to thousands of kids and adults in southeastern Wisconsin. A place that encourages, inspires and promotes creativity, NSAA has been an educational resource for those wishing to learn about the arts and themselves.
But after the learning, every artist also needs a place to do her art. 2011 marked the start of a new decade of programming, and it also kicked off an exciting new expansion, one that has brought this non-profit organization full circle.
