SNAC:  Social Night at the Art Center!

The Art Center is the place to be every third Wednesday of the month!  This is our chance to kick back in a low-pressure atmosphere, meet new friends, learn some new skills and let our creativity run wild!  Talented local artists lead the group in "No Experience Necessary" projects, from canvas painting to ceramics, and send participants home with their very own creation.  Cost generally runs $20-$40.  Festivities start at 6:30pm, with all supplies and light appetizers provided.  Bring your own beverages...and bring your friends! 


Projects vary month to month, and space is limited so please let us know if you plan to attend.  Register here or call us at 406.535.8278 for more information!

Drop-in Clay Club

Running October through December, Thursday evenings in the Ken Edwards Ceramic Studio are reserved for a drop in “Clay Club” from 6:30-9pm!

This is a low-stakes way to experiment with clay, and meet new friends! Our staff will be around for some instruction and helpful hints. This isn’t a “class,” but rather a space for independent making and play!

This is a Clay Club for all skill levels and experiences; try handbuilding, moldmaking, or throwing on the wheel. The Lewistown Art Center is currently able to offer free clay and firings to its members, but this won’t last long! Come get dirty and try some new materials! 

Bring your beverage of choice, a friend, and a good attitude, this’ll be fun! Clay Club is $10 per night for non-members, and $7 for members. No need to RSVP, we can’t wait to see you!
