Quilting is an art form that came to Clay County with the earliest settlers.  Quilters today are as active as ever.  Whether you crave the relaxation of a quilters retreat at the Sew Cozy Quilt Lodge or enjoy the monthly fellowship of other quilters with the Clay Center Piotique Quilters Guild, you can find inspiration here. 

Are you ready to learn a new artistic skill or just share the joy of creating with others?  Paint A Canvas and the Lakeview Art Studio provide relaxing studio spaces where you can use your creativity in a variety of mediums.  Visit their facebook pages for a current schedule of classes.

Each year the Clay Center Presbyterian Manor hosts the local "Art is Ageless" exhibit where local artists age 65 and older can submit entries in a variety of categories.
