Brown County, Indiana is a place where art, nature and adventure live in harmony. Visitors can find dozens of working studios nestled in the woods along the picturesque roads where artists and craftspeople of all types live and work.

During the month of October 13 sites with 19 artists open their studios to the public. Visitors can watch artists create & demonstrate their work and take home a handcrafted piece of Brown County. Some studios even offer opportunities for visitors to try the process themselves, and offer classes throughout the year.

The studio tour is a free, self-guided driving tour, with maps available online at our website: and also at local businesses in the county.

The variety of media is impressive, including glass, metal, pottery, fibers and weaving. All art is original and includes acrylic paintings, painted glass, watercolors, mixed media and folk-painted gourds, jewelry, hand forged metal art, fiber art, traditional stoneware, sawdust-fired and raku pottery, crystalline glazed porcelain, and glass art. There is garden art, recycled art, wearable art, in fact, just about every art imaginable!

The 13th annual tour is anchored by the T. C. Steele Historic Site as Tour Headquarters featuring the home, studio and gardens of T. C. Steele. Steele came to Brown County over 100 years ago and started the community as a well-known artist colony.
