Art Free-for-All

Get to know all The Contemporary Austin has to offer during this free, family-friendly open house! Make story-themed art to take home, play with chalkboard castles and lawn games, and enjoy demos and hands-on art-making with Art School instructors—including wheel throwing, portrait painting, aluminum casting, Claymation, screen printing, and much more.

Plus, check out sculptures on the grounds, hear performances by School of Rock, and grab a delicious bite from on-site food trucks The Ginger Armadillo, Rosarito, Thai, How Are You?, Casa de Glaze, and Cold Ones Pops.

We’ll also have tasty complimentary beverages from our kind sponsors, including Argus Cidery, Blue Owl Brewing, Chameleon Cold-Brew, Shiner, and Topo Chico.

Bring the family and spend the day with us!

We’re also proud to present the Cup Sale for the Education Fund, featuring unique, handcrafted ceramics by local artists and Art School faculty. The Cup Sale benefits arts outreach for more than 30,000 community members every year. Buy a cup and fill it up!
