2014 PARTICIPATING PRAC ARTISTS
Tips for selling your art at festivals.
Artfest, now in its 18th year, will include over 100 artists, artisans and crafters selling original works and live performances
by local artists and groups.
"Projects for the 1997 Year: One of the big projects we would like to become a reality this year is an artisan show involving all the visual and performing artists. An outdoor show at Rotary Park in Ajax or at Pickering Town Hall with pantomime, bands, artists, craft show and hands-on demonstrations." from PRAC minutes.

Mask Magic at Artfest 2014
Each year PineRidge Arts Council offers a new arts experience to visitors at Artfest. This year, thanks to the generosity of Enbridge Pipelines Inc., kids of all ages will be able to paint and decorate free wooden masks to take home. The annual popular outdoor event, Artfest on the Esplanade, brings families together at the arts and crafts tables. Parents, grandparents and kids will receive guidance and suggestions from a PRAC teaching artist (if they wish) and create their unique mask to show off and treasure.
