  • This place is awesome!! The events, classes and free Saturdays! The variety of art classes offered is amazing and has great artists/ instructors! They have art fairs indoors in the winter, a gift shop and coffee and food available. Student exhibits are cool too!
  • The museum is a beautiful place to visit! My kids loved the ancient art from around the world and listening to me explain about the different cultures. I particularly loved the glass gallery. We stopped in for glassblowing demonstrations as well. My older son has every one of his questions patiently answered. My younger son used to do the free preschool art classes on Fridays, he loved learning the different techniques. I think his favorite was making a pinch pot.
  • Love it! Fairly priced classes and great instructors. Got me off my butt to explore wide range of art projects like pottery wheel, water color painting and sculptural welding. Looked forward to every minute spent there plus it's in the actual museum. Not one negative. Real mood lifter.
  • The FIA is such a treasure! Art is incredible and so varied. A huge variety of activities and events. Art classes for kids and adults. So much to offer, take advantage of this community asset!
  • We went for their annual fundraiser. It's always an event that is over the top and very memorable. Strongly recommend going at least once.
