The Visual Arts Group began in American Fork in the early 1940’s when a group of men and women, who loved to draw and paint, met and decided to work together and share their talents, knowledge and experiences. The group was very diligent in staying together over the years and was always anxious to help the community develop their talents and enjoy the visual arts.
What we Offer the Community
The American Fork Visual Arts Program endeavors to bring these various art forms to the community through classes, events and exhibitions. We offer fine art classes to all age groups and at several locations through out AF. They are taught by professional artists in a variety of mediums such as watercolor, oils, acrylic, colored pencils, graphite pencil, clay and much more.
Plus, we offer an open invitation for artists to come to TABLE TIME at the AF Historic City Hall (31 N Church Street) every Tuesday at 11AM – 2 PM. This is simply a situation where you can come and work on your own art project while sitting with other artists. All are welcome to Table Time!
If daytime doesn’t work for you at Table Time, then we have the AFVA ART CLUB at the AF Arts Center (53 West Main Street) held on the second Friday of each month, starting March 15th, at 6 pm – 9 pm. Come collaborate and create together!
We are also involved in presenting a variety of venues where you can showcase your own art work. We host the annual Americana Arts and Music Festival in American Fork happening on June 28-29, 2019. Artists come from near and far to display and sell their artwork under the shaded booths. We host the Steel Days Art Show in the American Fork Library every year in July as part of American Fork City’s Steel Days celebration. This show is for both adult and youth artists. And lastly, we host the Christmas in the Rotunda Art Show for youth (1st through 12th grades) each year in December at the AF Library.
