Calling all ARTISTS and WANNA-BE ARTISTS!
The Fort Scott Festival of Arts committee has a weekend packed full of events for you, your friends and family of all ages April 27-29, 2018!
Thanks to the event sponsors and a grant from the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation, the activities and workshops are being offered either free or at a nominal price that primarily covers the cost of materials to keep the festival affordable and encourage participation. We ask you to share this information with your friends and co-workers as well to help spread the word.
Please review the enclosed schedule and consider registering for at least one or more activities. There is a great variety of workshops for little kids, big kids, and adults. Note there is a “Festival Finale” event Saturday evening at Nate’s Place that will include an art sale and is a fundraiser to raise seed money for the next biennial festival.
If you are interested in Fort Scott becoming a hub for arts and the imaginable for our community ~ we encourage you to attend the Saturday, 2pm session with special guest Marc Willson as he presents “Creative Placemaking: Building the Artist Community in Fort Scott”.
We hope to see you the last weekend of April!
