Southwest Iowa Rural Art Tour and South East Iowa Artists' Studio Tour

Southern Iowa Artists (many are retired art educators) will be setting up Rural Art Studio Tours. The goal is to educate Iowans (and others) as to what an artists does in their studio. We wish to get art educators to visit our Facebook sites and share information with students, schools, their friends, family, etc.. as to what, where and when these events are happening. If they go to these sites and like them, they will receive updates on their Facebook as we update information, search for other artists and share what's happening in our part of the state.

SWI Art Tour (pronounced SoooooWeeeeee Art Tour) stands for Southwest Iowa Rural Art Tour and South East Iowa Artists' Studio tour, almelien studio is on the other side of the state.
