Art can be a healthy way to process things as we navigate life.  Our building is open and warm and we are creative and open to how it could serve you during this dark and distant winter.  You can learn new things or tap into past crafts, we would be thrilled to have you show up and make!!

  • Come make things!  We have the tools for pottery, drawing/painting, printmaking and stained glass
  • Volunteer to positively contribute and have a different kind of reason to leave the house!  We would love to see you.
  • There are both scholarships available and donations available. Teton Arts strives to make art experiences accessible and affordable for all!

Art can help connect us and give us a coping mechanism, communication tool, community involvement and lovely purpose, but if you would like other helpful health resources in our community, visit the wonderful sites below:
