Fruit Loops Art Center

Above, second-graders Brynlee and Kayla, first-grader Zellie and third-grader Selah work on seasonal paintings during the after-school block at Fruit Loops.

When you walk into Fruit Loops Art Center, you can immediately see and feel the imagination and creativity that only a child can express. What might look like two boxes that have been colored with markers are a rocketship and a tank. The dioramas hung on the wall come together to make a haunted house.

From the cubbies full of supplies to the designated room just for painting — its walls splattered with paint — it’s a perfect space for creating, which is exactly what owners Grace Poulsen and Emily Manning were hoping for when they started Fruit Loops in November 2021.
