The Art Blitz is modeled after the BIOblitz, an intensive period of biological surveying.
The Art Blitz is two days of art demonstration and exploration. Like the BioBlitz, it relies on volunteers, artists, and visitors to facilitate and explore a period of “intensive art” in our community.
Parking and Admission for the public is FREE.
For a donation, visitors of any age can participate, take a mini class, try a new medium. Or relax, get some food, and observe artists at work. Have a picnic, take a nature walk, or sit and watch the entertainment.
Artists participate through demonstrating or teaching. We welcome all volunteers, both artistic and otherwise.
