Forest Area Arts Council

Join Us in Supporting the Arts in Forest County


FAAC’s primary programming includes monthly “Art Experience” events open to the general public and held alternately in the communities of Tionesta and Marienville.  These include showings of art-related movies, musical performances, art history lectures, art demonstrations and workshops, garden and building tours, art exhibits and more.  These events are held the third Friday of each month from May through October.

One-day field trips – or group tours – are organized periodically to venues of artistic interest.  These opportunities are promoted on our events calendar, as well as on our Facebook page, in local newspapers, and flyers posted in local libraries and other public places.

Board meetings are open to the public and held at 6:00 pm on the last Wednesday of each month at the Forest County Visitor Center, at 422 Elm Street in Tionesta.  If you have ideas to share, or would like to become involved in our efforts, please join us!
