Our learning center is located atop a bluff near Stockholm, Wisconsin, on a historic Swedish farmstead. It is my dream-come-true. As an artist and a Licensed Art Teacher (WI/MN), my passion has always been to help students identify what brings them joy and provide opportunities that inspire them to create for life. Classes are offered in a multipurpose workshop, fiber arts studio, horse arena and new log cabin, close to where Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867.

Friendly critters will greet you as you enter the ranch.

The Rustic Pine Creek Road is close by to hike and explore.

Running Dog Ranch classes are part of Stockholm’s ‘Olde Style Nordic Experience.’ In addition to standard class content, we offer students the opportunity to expand their knowledge about ecofriendly options in a holistic educational process that includes cultural awareness and adventure, while expanding an appreciation for all we have on this planet.

Classes will be offered from May to November and our amazingly talented instructors are local, as well as from the five-state area. It is definitely worth a trip down the “Most Beautiful River Road in the United States” (According to Huffington Post’s Annual Competition 2012) to explore this area and it’s only 90 min. or less from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN).
