Spring into May
We are starting off the month of May with our First Friday Open House Event Orange is the New Green: Homage to the Monarch. This collaborative show is the vision of Shirah Miriam Aumann, a well traveled environmental artist, working out of Springfield, Missouri. This show is from 6:30-9:00 pm on Friday May 6th. Guests to the show will enter a gallery of 1000 paper monarch butterflies, view beautiful artwork from 30 local artists and experience fashion designs from the Fashion Designer Society of Springfield.
Artsfest on Historic Walnut Street is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, May 7th and 8th. We will be painting LIVE at this fantastic event. Visit us and we will give you 10% off your next art class at Artivities!
We have a terrific calendar of events planned this month, including brand new wheel thrown pottery classes and more beginner painting and pottery classes. See our calendar for class registration and event information. Don’t forget about our special events too, such as The Art of Yoga and our Music and Art Classes for Little’s.
For Artists and Educators
Artivities offers many perks to artists and educators in our studio, aside from classes and workshops. Do you or someone you know want to teach a class and can’t find a space to work from? Ask us about our classroom rental. We provide many materials, equipment and supplies to assist you in your very own workshop. Submit a class or event to us from our Event Submission Form.
We also work with local artists to exhibit gallery shows of artwork. If you have an art show you would like to submit to our calendar, please fill out our Exhibition Form.
Are you or someone you know looking for an indoor studio to photograph people, objects or pets? We have a great space for you! Our photography studio is located upstairs from our gallery and includes seamless backdrops, and studio lighting for your convenience. Our studio rental sessions start at $75 for 2 hours.
