Terra Studios is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoting all resources, profits, energies and donations to a dream of a brighter future through using art to create a better world. Our purpose is to promote art and inspire creativity. We hope you will visit and join us in our quest.
Terra Studios is open 7 days/week, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s days.) We also close in cases of inclement weather; please check by calling our gallery at (479) 643.3185. Admission is free; donations to the nonprofit are appreciated.
**Due to cold weather and lower volumes of traffic during the winter months, the Cafe will have limited options for food from January 1 to March 15. We will have quiches, lasagna, mini pizzas and sweets, but we will not make sandwiches during this time.**
The home of the Original Bluebird of Happiness® and the Pink Bird of Hope®, Terra Studios is a wonderland of art, a popular Northwest Arkansas tourist attraction and a family friendly destination. Watch as our collectible glass bluebirds are proudly made in the USA by skilled Arkansas crafts people. (Glass demonstrations daily 11:30 – 4:30, mid-March through New Year’s weekend.) We showcase American arts and crafts, Ozark crafts, handmade collectibles and unique gifts created by local artists.
Try our Art Lab and enjoy being creative with free to moderately priced arts and crafts projects for all ages. Learn basic art techniques in fun art classes and workshops. See our calendar for Classes offered and times for Art Lab. Art Lab is closed during the winter months and kicks off each year during Arkansas’ Spring Break.
We also offer group tour packages for motor coach tours, schools, church, civic and corporate groups, as well as private classes for groups of six or more. Please contact us to book your field trip or group tour.
