Join us to Celebrate the first day of Spring and support Emergent Arts!

For your generous contribution of $75 you will receive our Indulgent Picnic Tote overflowing with the bounty of Hot Springs including local indulgent treats and charming surprises. You will also receive access to online videos to enjoy spring around Hot Springs.

2021 marks the 100th anniversary of Hot Springs National Park, and our Indulgent Picnic Tote is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon in the park!  We invite you to celebrate nature by visiting the National Park or one of our city parks (maps included). We all look forward to returning to in-person celebrations, until then we can celebrate both together and safely distanced on March 20.

Spring Indulgences highlights local makers and takes inspiration from the coming of spring and the imagery of our sister city, Hanamki. Included are Japanese themed crafts, including an indigo Shibori picnic cloth hand-dyed by EA artists; haiku by local poets and traditional Japanese poetry; and an origami crane and a kit to fold your own cranes for good luck.  

In addition to the Indulgent Picnic Tote, you will get access to online videos of a bicycle tour down the greenway, a mindfulness hike to a Hot Springs vista, a guided meditation, and a workshop – supplies included in the tote! You will also receive a gift certificate for Emergent Arts worth $25 toward a class or a one-month studio membership.

Indulgent Picnic Totes will be available for pick on Saturday, March 20, between noon and 4:00 p.m. While here, you will get a peek at our new art supply POP UP SHOP!

If your budget only extends to $25 you will receive all the links to our Experiences and the workshop kit. They will be yours to enjoy at your leisure with our appreciation.
