The Art Factory Presents:


September 9-11th
Post Classes on September 12.

Blue Smoke


The Art Factory Body Art Fest is a 3-day, 2 night event that combines fun creative activities with learning tailored to face and body artists. Focusing on fun and community first, we provide opportunities to learn and help you grow as an entrepreneur. Come learn and play in a relaxed, festive atmosphere suitable for artists of all skill levels.

Not long ago we relocated the Art Factory to a newly remodeled 15,000-square-foot facility. Our vision from the start was to invite like-minded people to gather and learn under one roof. That time has finally arrived!

With three inspirational classrooms including a huge art studio, a black light room, and a cozy coffee shop, we offer a comfortable, intimate setting for up to 80 guests. We also house all the amazing products available on so you can shop till you drop during your stay. Space is limited so ticket sales are on a first-come, first-serve basis. For those coming from out of town, there’s a hotel within walking distance to the factory.

Come join the fun to learn, reconnect, make new friends with people who share your passion, and continue to inspire one another throughout the year.
