The ODD Art Festival

Why try to be like everyone else? God made you Odd!

Join us for the “Odd Art Festival” on July 12, 2019 at the VineArts Studio, from 2 to 8 pm! The festival is free, interactive, and designed for adults, but kids are welcome too (children must be accompanied by a parent at all times). Festival will take place both inside the air-conditioned studio and outside in the studio parking lot.

Registration for Art Exhibitors


Visit with our art exhibitors as they create artwork on-site. Enjoy free cookies and lemonade, and dozens of art displays. Each exhibitor will bring 1 artwork to demo, 3 things to give away, and 5+ artworks to exhibit. (1-3-5… odd!)


Walk through a grove of trees re-imagined by installation artists Amandalynn Lovewell and Heather Feld-Wright. Ignite your memories of childhood play forts, re-cast as a nature-inspired cathedral.


Free raffle drawings on the hour every hour with fabulous prizes, just for being there and talking with our exhibitors! 


Need art supplies? At the festival, show us 3 images of artwork YOU created (you can show us photos on your phone), and we’ll enter you into an art supply raffle worth $200! Examples: Show our team photos of things you drew, pictures you took on your phone, a digital animation you made, a cake you baked, a woodcarving you made, a poem you wrote, a short video you created, etc. Create small pieces of art at our art-making stations at the festival, and show us those items; those will count, too!


If we discover art secrets, we share them. Enjoy some fun hands-on instruction in various mediums by a multitude of artists at the festival, inside the studio and out in the parking lot. Interactive demos and workshops offered during the Odd Art Festival will include:

  • Drawing trees in pastel
  • Acrylic pouring
  • Watercolor for beginners
  • Floral painting with ink and string
  • Photography composition tips
  • Abstract art using shaving cream
  • Tempera painting for children
  • Make your own edible painting (icing on graham crackers) for kids and adults

At VineArts, we believe God is passionate for art and design…. that God made each person unique and creative in a billion different ways… that art is for everyone, and we mean everyone… and that we can grow closer to God by developing our unique sensitivity to beauty and brokenness. We believe art and faith go together.

It’s time to integrate your heart with creativity. The best way to learn is in community.

Let’s grow artistically and spiritually, together.

VineArts is a ministry of Vineyard Boise Christian Fellowship. We have tables in the sanctuary, and you’re invited to bring your own art supplies to Sunday services and draw/create at your table during the service (YES, we draw at our table during the music and during the message, too). Tip: Bring a small reading/book light to see better. Just two things: 1) Make your art silently so as not to distract others, and 2) clean up your area when you’re done. Church services are at 9:00 and 11:00 am Sunday mornings. Come as you are, you’ll be loved.
