Educational opportunities for art and artists in the NWA area.

Throughout the year, ANA provides opportunities for the public and members to participate in monthly educational events, workshops with national artists, and a list of local and regional events and artistic outlets. Watch for more to come.

Monthly Art Education Meetings

When: Third Thursday of the month
What Time: 1:00–3:00 pm or 6:00–8:00 pm
Place: To be determined each month

Each month featured artists offer instruction or demonstrations, including occasional hands-on opportunities to create art during the meeting. This provides artists with the opportunity to meet and network with other local artists, while continuing to share and improve individual talents.
While meetings are generally held in Fayetteville, we do occasionally meet in Springdale or Bentonville. Please note meeting places vary according to space availability, so be sure to check the ANA website and mark your calendars. Also check again a day or two before the meeting to see if there are changes in time or venue.

Meetings are open to all and visitors are always welcome. We look forward to having you join us!


Hands-on workshops are held periodically throughout the month. Information about upcoming workshops can be found by subscribing to our newsletter by clicking on the button below. You can also get information about workshops by following the ANA Facebook page.
