Creative Opportunities / Calls to Artists


Throughout the year the Forney Arts Council offers opportunities for creatives to share their passion and talents. Don’t forget to check back periodically below!



Summer Art Camps

The Forney Arts Council is looking to bring aboard several creative and energetic teachers to help expand the Arts in Forney and lead our annual Summer Camp Series. This year, we will be Traveling the World and focusing on crafts and art from various regions of the world. While the lessons will be planned by our Summer Camp Director, we are happy to have you bring your own expertise and imagination to the camp. We are also open to curating your own personalized lesson. This is a paid position and we will also provide materials.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Margaret Pearce:
