Come enjoy a peaceful and creative holiday activity with friends and family at the Prairie Arts Center. We provide ornaments in a variety of pre-cut shapes for you to choose from. We also provide liquid watercolor paints and ink for you to use to make your ornament unique and beautiful! Because you will be using paint instead of glaze, your ornaments can go home with you the same day. This is a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones!

Join us on Saturday, December 5th for a fun, free, and family friendly printing activity! Once you've shopped your artist-made gifts at our Holiday Pop Ups, come on inside and print some wrapping paper to give your gifts that special hand crafted look. We will provide an array of fruits and veggies that, when cut open, make interesting and beautiful shapes, textures, and patterns on paper. All supplies are provided and there will be an instructor on hand to demonstrate and answer any questions.

Prairie Arts Center is now offering Porch Portraits for anyone in Stillwater interested in helping us capture this very unique moment in our personal and shared histories. The concept is simple: for a few minutes at a set time, everyone in your household gathers on the porch (or on a deck, stoop, community yard, etc.) and one of our photographers takes a few pictures from a safe distance. Our aim is very simple- to document, memorialize, and capture our community during this unprecedented time. We are all aware of being a part of history right now, so let's do what we can to remember and celebrate the resilience of Stillwater and its citizens.

The definition of a “pop-up shop” is a short-term, temporary retail event that is "here today, gone tomorrow." Our Holiday POP UP Art Shops are normally inside the arts center, but due to COVID-19 we are moving them outside to ensure social distancing. Good Little Eater will be onsite with hot chocolate and festive treats to keep you warm and in the spirit. There will be up to 20 local artists working in all different media types participating in our shops. Come shop local and handmade! Holiday POP UP Art Shops will happen in collaboration with the Stillwater Farmers Market.

Prairie Arts Center is committed to developing and supporting interest in and exploration of the visual arts. As a part of that commitment, we offer students aged 13 and older the opportunity to partner with a working artist in our community for instruction and guidance here at the center. If you or your child have an interest or talent in a particular medium, we can help find a mentor that is knowledgable and skilled in that same medium. This includes drawing, painting, ceramics, printing, digital photography, fiber arts, and graphic design. Scheduling would be contingent on artist and student availability.
