The winter is slipping by so very fast. And, it is now time to start planning our summer schedule for Afton's Old School Art Studio. We will begin our 2016 season in the first part of May.
But first, a little about our quaint village. Afton is nestled between the wooded bluffs and the scenic St. Croix River. Our historic main street of Afton features several unique shops that sell clothing, jewelry, antiques, plants, handmade gift items and more. There are several restaurants and a historic ice cream parlor. We are located just behind Squire House Garden Center, north of the park. Our Studio is a cozy unique place where artists of all ages gather to create, inspire and share with one another. Our main building is the original 2 room Afton school house built in 1867. It is made out of sandstone brick and cost the town $600.00 to build which they were quite proud of. We have a second building that was added somewhere around the 1950's. In the past several years we have created a beautiful little courtyard that is host to many art and music events where you can enjoy hours of relaxing fun.
Below is our city and business association schedule of events so you may want to add these activities to your summer & fall calendar.....
This year the school house will host many class events and will include:
