This year’s tour date is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, November 4th and 5th, 2017. We are currently seeking sponsors for this our 15th Annual Studio Tour. Our growing family of sponsors have included restaurant, investment, real estate, insurance, health care, gallery, & automotive services. Art in Action is a not for profit organization. In order to provide free admission to the public and continue our scholarship programme we rely on your generousity to help fund it.

The scholarship winner will also be given a spot on this year’s tour.
