Members of our 2023 Yellow Springs Art Show artists will be once again painting en plein air in our meadows and pathways around the village. They are always happy to share their creativity with you.
We encourage you to bring picnics and spend time enjoying the beauty of the village in spring. Spread your blankets, relax, and enjoy the music of Chris Lebresco who is returning to the Lincoln Building porch to entertain you.
The Chester Springs Studio has planned several activities to extend your artistic experience here at Yellow Springs. Matt Wren, Ceramic Studio Supervisor, will be doing clay throwing demonstrations.
For those wishing to learn more about our history, HISTORY WALKS are planned at 11 am and 1 pm. Look for signs where these walks will begin and learn about our long and interesting history.
After gathering inspiration in the galleries, the kids can paint a garden rock for Mom! Enjoy a game of giant jenga or connect four in the grass while the paint dries. Thank you to Sweetwater 100 for donating the river rocks!
