Where Everybody is an Artist!

Where Everybody is an Artist!

Come and have some fun.


The Art Loft is your place to unleash your inner artist. Come inside and get inspired to make something beautiful. No experience is necessary and you will be amazed at what you are capable of. All you need is a willingness to cut loose and have some fun. The art just happens from there.


Spend some quality time with the friends you came with and the new friends you will make at every Art Loft event. What can be more relaxing and fun then painting, drawing, or even coloring with friends? See our Special Events page for information about our popular “Paint Nights.”


With so many different classes and workshops to choose from you will have the opportunity to expand your artistic horizons and learn mediums you never even knew existed. With our low cost drop-in classes you will be able to take many mediums for a test drive to see what you love most.


You can use the creative process of making art to improve your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. What can be more relaxing and de-stressing then painting, drawing, or even coloring with friends? Art is therapeutic can help nourish your soul. We recommend 1 – 3 servings per week!

It’s easy! Just join our mailing list to be inspired and informed of all of our upcoming classes, workshops, & events. Come join the fun!

Art Loft is Now an Official Art Hive Location

The Art Loft is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with Midcoast Art Hive which is part of the International Art Hive Network of community art studios.  Together we will host a free monthly open community studio where anyone is welcome to come and create, individually or in collaboration with others.

The Art Loft Gallery

There are many galleries lining the streets in downtown Rockland, but this one is different. Not only is the art on display less expensive and much more attainable for most folks, but it intends to inspire you to make your own similar works of art. So many aspiring arts go to galleries, not to actually purchase the art, but to be inspired by it. Normally this is not the intent of the art galleries, who are in business to sell the art for profit. We want our artwork to serve as a catalyst to spark your interest in art and make you realize that you too can make art.

Come and visit The Art Loft Gallery. If you see something you like you have two options . . . purchase it, or even better . . . learn how to make it yourself. You never know if you can until you try!
