About Us


Everyone is an artist.  Kids know that truth best.  Some supplies.  Some inspiration.  And VOILA!  At the Northfield Art Barn we see that time and time again.  We are always amazed at the creativity and imagination of kids.  That's what ultimately inspired the Northfield Art Barn.

The Northfield Art Barn is located in Northfield, MN, 45 minutes south of Minneapolis.  We host summer day camps, birthday parties and other events at our art studio for kids inside a renovated barn.

We also offer subscription DIY art boxes designed for kids ages 4-11 (though many of our customers are under 4 and over 11).  We aim to provide the same creative experience in our boxes as we do at the Art Barn.  

The Northfield Art Barn is run by Kelly Johnson and her husband Abe.  Kelly has been a school teacher for two decades.  Kelly and Abe live in Northfield, MN with their five children.
