Due to COVID-19 concerns this year’s Art Blitz will be live-streamed to enable us to reach the maximum number of individuals. 

Immerse yourself in a virtual world of art-making, with live demos and creative detours for all ages. Local artists will provide live facebook demos including ceramics, watercolor, drawing photography and weaving, plus behind-the-scenes tours of the Art Barn rarely seen. Galleries will be open during the day for those who wish to enjoy our exhibits or a picnic in one of our gardens.
