Art Barn School of Art is thrilled to announce the return of Art Blitz as a two-day in-person festival in 2021. We welcome visitors’ safety protocols in place, including mask requirements, social distancing and reduced capacity within the barn.

Immerse yourself in a world of artmaking, with live demos and creative detours for all ages. Roll up your sleeves or just relax and watch.

An engaging schedule of demonstrations and hands-on art activities for children and adults will also include live music, food, mini classes, an exhibition of artwork from our permanent collection and fun for all ages.

The annual Art Blitz event helps Art Barn highlight its educational art offerings with live demonstrations and exhibitions of regional art, and collaborations with other arts organizations.

The festival is designed to encourage visitors and residents of all ages to actively engage in various art activities.  Art Barn’s retreat-like atmosphere provides plenty of inspiration for creative minds.  

Activity tickets are available for purchase at entrance, and parking is free.
