ART FROM THE HEART – Opening reception at Stumptown Art Studio September 6
Stumptown Art studio is pleased to showcase artwork created through the Art from the Heart program. Join us during First Thursday Gallery Nights for an evening of art, refreshments and take part in making windchimes that help raise funds for Art from the Heart.
Art from the Heart is the newest venture from Stumptown Art Studio, making art activities accessible for people of all abilities throughout our community. The recently acquired Van Gogh Art Mobile is making these outreach opportunities possible. Donations and fundraising events provide the funds for Stumptown Art Studio to continually offer enriching art experiences to people with disabilities and to those who would otherwise never have the chance to learn about and explore the world of art. Visual arts help to develop awareness of a person’s significance in their world and their community.
Creative expression fosters personal growth.
Outreach Art Programs already in place with neighboring
organizations include The Flathead Youth Home, Special Friends Advocacy, Flathead Industries,The Veteran’s Home, and area Senior Centers.

Stumptown Art Studio was founded in 1995 as a non-profit community art center where people of all ages would be able to “…express their inherent creative nature and learn about the world of art…” Classes and workshops, outreach and field trips, exhibits, an artists’ co-operative, community events, retail art supplies and paint-you-own pottery, glass fusing and mosaic-making are all part of the many opportunities through the art studio. Currently, a community mosaic mural, Windows On Whitefish or WOW, is the latest project that has been launched by Stumptown Art Studio.
Open hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon until 5 p.m.
