In addition to the more than 60 year tradition of hosting the annual Student Invitational, LMFA encourages and fosters budding artists throughout a four-county area through outreach activities such as Family Day, art classes, and workshops for adults and children, as well as docent-led tours for individuals, schools, and community organizations. The LMFA studio classroom also hosts artist groups such as the Artists, Brainstorming and Critiquing (ABC) Group.
