Artiscape - An Artist

For the past 18 years, people from around the globe come together in Columbus, Ohio, to take hands-on workshops to learn new techniques or refine their skills, shop for art supplies and unique embellishments, get inspired by finished works of art, and more!

Planning is underway for Artiscape 2019! Signup for our newsletter to receive updates.

NOTE: Lisa is still working to find a venue/dates for 2019. At this time (August 31, 2018) we do not have a venue or dates for Artiscape 2019. To be notified of the dates as soon as they are booked, please signup for our newsletter.

Artiscape is an artistic event of mixed media workshops presented by a select group of professional instructors, a Marketplace, an Outsider Art Fair, a Preview Party, demonstrations, a silent auction, and more!

More than 40 hands-on workshops are expected, with topics like bookbinding, jewelry, metalwork, beading, calligraphy, altered books, and mixed media. The Marketplace on Saturday features vendors focused on quality art supplies, vintage findings, and ephemera. The Outsider Art Fair on Sunday features artisans offering finished works ranging from mixed media collages/assemblages, to home decor, to hand crafted books, to wearable art.

A Weekend of Fun
By combining social gatherings, eclectic shopping, and fun and challenging classes, we strive to create a weekend for you to remember. Take a full schedule of workshops, or just a few and relax with a book in the garden atrium lobby. Come for the weekend or the afternoon. The goal is a fun, educational weekend among friends, old and new!

Artiscape was named an event “not-to-be-missed” by Country Living Magazine. In 2017 the event drew more than 200 artists from 26 states and 3 countries.
