Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation showcased in Frances Anderson exhibit

Local teachers and volunteer art docents attended a series of workshops with arts educator Lael Williams as part of the “Community Workshops” program facilitated at Edmonds Community College. Funding for many such workshops is made possible through the grants program of the EAFF.

The Edmonds Arts Festival is over but the programs that benefit from this festival enrich the arts in Edmonds all year long. Learn about the programs of the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation in a new exhibit in the Edmonds Arts Commission Display Case located at the main entrance of the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main Street. Building hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-9 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

During the month of June, watch a video loop on a monitor inside the case which features the programs of the EAFF. The other visuals in the case will be on display until July 30, 2011. You will see examples of the Visual Arts Idea Grants that have made explorations of a multitude of visual arts media possible within local K-12 school classrooms.

Be introduced to foundation scholarship graduates who continue to share their talents with our local community; share the excitement of new projects and visioning for public art and support for other arts organizations through community grants; learn more about the classes, exhibits and programs at ArtWorks. See what is happening in education not only in our local schools but for teachers and artists of every age.

  1. Was Frances Anderson the Principal at the old Edmonds Grade School? If so, she was my Principal starting in 1943. I was in the 3rd Grade. I graduated from the old High School in 1953. Glen Grace and I joined the U.S. Air force in November 1953. I stayed for 26 years.
    Edmonds has really changed since my family lived on 7th and Bell.
    Have a great day.
