In Tuolumne County CA we've just celebrated our second Foothill Farmlands ARTS Festival (www.farmart.org). This week-long event takes place at multiple farm sites. During the week we host arts and crafts fairs, cultural heritage events, music concerts, storytelling concerts, plein air painting opportunities and tasting adventures on our local farms and ranches. Plus, we work with our local schools, and bring school children out on to the farms during the week, too. At each school field trip a local artist meets the kids at the farm where the kids are given an art lesson inspired by that particular farm or ranch. This year over 180 kids and teachers participated. AND more than 3000 people attend the 6 events of the Foothill Farmlands ARTS Festival. We also had a wonderful art exhibit of farm-inspired art.
