About the Amana Arts Guild

The Amana Arts Guild offers a rich diversity of programs and activities providing a wide range of cultural experiences in all areas of the arts. Established in 1978 as a nonprofit organization, the Guild continues to expand its list of programs and serves as a valuable resource for the Amana community, the state of Iowa, and the Midwest.

Our educational programming includes seasonal classes and summer workshops for children and adults. Offerings include but are not limited to: painting, blacksmithing, basketry, tinsmithing, woodworking, rug weaving, and photography.

The Amana Arts Guild desires to bring the arts to all citizens and encourages the preservation of local cultural heritage. In addition the Guild offers the public a variety of seasonal events including a Festival of the Arts, a Fall Fiber and Clay Art Show, a Communal Meal Celebration, and more. Each year the Guild presents a Friends of the Arts Award to individuals who have made important contributions toward the growth of artistic life in Amana.

The Guild maintains an arts center in High Amana as well as the Gallery on Main.
