Long-established art guilds in the Highland Lakes nurture local creative spirits in a variety of forms with classes, summer camps, and gallery space for members to share and sell their work. You don’t have to be an expert to join their ranks: These palleted passels and crafty creators embrace anyone with an interest in art.
In addition to arts and crafts for sale, the Kingsland House of Arts & Crafts hosts an annual Christmas Market the second weekend in November, Market Days on the first Saturday each month from May through October, workshops on the second Saturday of each month from January through October, and Open Craft Circles on the second and fourth Sundays each month.
OPEN: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday
Buchanan Arts & Crafts displays and sells original art and handcrafted items and offers art classes as well. Special events include Game Days in April and October and a Christmas Bazaar on the second Saturday in December.
