ESSA celebrates 20th anniversary with Incredible Edible competition

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The Eureka Springs School of the Arts will celebrate two decades of art education with the Incredible Edible Food Art Competition, Postcard Art Sale and live artist demonstrations from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at ESSA’s Wood and Iron Studio complex at 15751 US Highway 62 West between Lake Leatherwood and Inspiration Point.

Enter the Incredible Edible Food Art Competition by creating a work of art with food. There are two categories this year: whatever your funky food imagination can conjure or a birthday cake to honor ESSA’s 20th anniversary. There are foodie prizes for the best spectacular snacks, and all entrants will receive a 20 percent off coupon for any 2018 ESSA workshop.

The famous Postcard Art Sale has something for everyone with dozens of choices for one-of-a-kind, original post-card sized art done by local artists. Artists are creating small-scale pieces in watercolor, oil, mixed media, glass, wood and other mediums. Young and old can also make their own postcard art to take home. All the supplies you’ll need to flex your creative muscles will be provided.

Admission is by donation and all proceeds from the event will benefit ESSA.
