Artists at Work
Come in and try your hand at some of the art processes our Artists at Work are using.What's an arts festival without artists? One of the favourite activities at our Arts Festival is the opportunity for festival visitors to experience art-making up close as you watch artists create in real time.

This is a chance for the public to engage in informal conversations about artistic processes. And best of all? YOU get to try your hand at it too!

Check back in the spring for more information on our 2019 Artists at Work.

Look Who Came in 2018!
Artists at Work at the Didsbury Train Station was bursting at the seams with a full house of fabulous Alberta artists and artisans. We had talent from Bowden, Didsbury, Carstairs, Innisfail, and Sundre! Some loved past Festivals that they knew they had to be here again; some were newcomers who really enjoyed meeting all our art lovers.
