About Us

Kirkland Arts Center is a non-profit organization offering arts experiences through hands-on art-making and public exhibitions of contemporary art.

KAC has served the Eastside and Seattle since 1962 with nearly sixty years of creating engaging arts experiences. Founded as the Creative Arts League by artists and citizens interested in providing local opportunities in the arts and in preserving a Kirkland landmark, the Peter Kirk Building. For over half a century, KAC has owned and maintained this historic structure, transforming the building into an exhibition gallery, community art studios, and classrooms to serve students of all ages and skill levels. These deep community roots continue to support Kirkland Arts Center today with exceptionally loyal students, donors, and artists.
