Adult Classes

The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council invites you to become part of the creative arts process by purchasing a share in its Community Supported Arts (CSA) program! The CSA is part of the Arts Incubator program that supports artists living and working in North Mississippi.

The 2018 CSA artists are hard at work on their projects, and shares are available for purchase now! All shares will be completed in time for the June Art Crawl on June 26th! The more support each artists receive, the more their projects can grow!

You can follow your artist from initial idea through the creative process. Connect with the unique stories that define our community!

The Impact

The Mississippi creative economy makes up 16% of the overall economy of the state and draws in over 22 million tourists. Whether visiting the Blues Trail, attending Double Decker Festival, or an Oxford Art Crawl, the arts are big business and draw people together to engage in community building. Last year arts organizations in Lafayette County spent over $2 million. The impact of the arts in our community isn’t just aesthetic, it economic!
