It’s time to save the date for next year’s Best of Missouri Hands conference that we lovingly refer to as ArtSmart!!! April 14 – 16, 2023.

This Professional Development Conference is designed for our members, friends, family….anyone who LOVES ART. Registration is open to anyone interested in learning, networking, making new friends, visiting old, creating art, mingling and just hanging around other creative minded folks. You will come away refreshed, reenergized, and motivated.

Save the date now…Friday April 14, 2023 thru Sunday April 16, 2023. Friday is a partial day with registration, Friday Night Frolics where we have a variety of art projects you can try your hand at, as well as a hospitality room where you can visit with fellow artists. Saturday will be a full day with a guest speaker and mini breakout workshops, along with the Beast (artists garage sale), raffle, lunch, and more. Sunday we will wrap up the art raffle, enjoy mingling and a talk by one of our speakers. Plans are still in the works for this fun filled weekend, so stay tuned as we hammer out details.
