6x6 Canvas Pick Up
The 6x6 canvas pick up is now available for youth and adult artists at either SAA location! This year canvases are only $5 and each artist can enter up to 3 submissions. Are you a 3D artist? We also want 3D artworks as long as they don't exceed 6 inches in any direction. This is a great opportunity for artists to display their artworks in a professional gallery while raising funds for the SAA.
The 6x6 Art Raffle will take place November 3-10 with an in person reception to finally return at the SAA Collective on November 10! For full details about this event visit here.
August 20, 9 AM-3 PM
We'll be selling gently used and new art and craft supplies and equipment. Come by and see if one man's trash is your treasure! Items like easels, drafting tables, photography equipment, frames, scrapbooking supplies, and more will be available. Funds from the sale will be used to purchase new equipment for the SAA School of Art! The Yart Sale will be held at Main Campus, 700 N 4th Street.
Hoopskirt and Haber-Dash
August 27, 8 AM
Race back to the 19th century in the Hoopskirt and Haber-Dash. This is a 5K fun run where you can dress like you just stepped out of a haberdashery in hat and tie, or that you just made your debut in the biggest hoopskirt you can find!
The course is a mostly flat course in Abraham Lincoln’s Springfield, through Enos Park neighborhood, north to Lincoln Park, and back down again. Fun costuming is encouraged, with a prize for the best dressed of the bunch. More details to come!
