Mississippi School of Folk Arts is a 501c3 non- profit art school which offers classes and workshops in traditional arts and traditional crafts.  We provide a welcoming environment for those wishing to learn a new skill, hone skills they have, have a fun evening out with friends and family and grow closer with team building experiences.  Private parties for both children and adults are offered for those looking for a unique way to celebrate milestone events or everyday events.


Membership in Mississippi School of Folk Arts provides several opportunities to come together to work alongside other creative people during open studio times.  Pottery membership allows full time access to our fully equipped pottery studio.  We have artist studios for rent for our members with some of the most beautiful views in Natchez.  Members often receive a discount on workshops and classes and are offered the opportunity to participate in our Artist Member Exhibit annually.  Exhibits will resume when MSFA feels it is safe to gather in a group, member exhibits will be announced in late 2021.

If you are looking for a way to support the arts, sponsor a child for a workshop or ongoing class or otherwise provide support for Mississippi School of Folk Arts, please consider a donation.  We are a registered charity in the state of Mississippi as well as a 501c3 non profit institution and can provide you donor information for your taxes.  Please get in touch if you have questions about how we can use your support.  We need volunteers with skills too!  Are you retired or find yourself with some time and wanting to give back to the art community?  We'd love to talk with you!
