This will be our 8th anniversary of doing Artfest at Fort Worden and attendees continue to say that it just gets better and better every year! We are excited to welcome back 23 previous teachers who we love & adore as well as 13 new teachers who promise even more unique projects & techniques. While our workshops are incredible, it is our extracurricular events, the location and the attendees who come that sets Artfest apart from other events. People leave with brand new friendships that last for years, new groups that they stay involved with long after the event is over, a renewed sense of their artistic selves and a full battery to take back with them to their normal lives. It is a very nourishing event for your creative selves. There is magic that happens in Port Townsend during the event that no one can explain, but everyone feels.
The workshops are full day, 6 hour sessions designed to provide not only several techniques learned throughout the day but time enough to actually work on what has been learned so that it can sink in. The teachers come from all over the United States & Australia and represent some of the best in their fields. (Near Seattle)
