California Art Festivals

California is home to a leading list of artists and art festivals. Art Walks have become extremely popular as regularly scheduled art events. California art festivals rarely stand alone and often include themes that enhance the events through entertainment and attractions. Community festivals tie in art show elements, and in the wine regions of California you'll discover that wine & art do mix quite well (just don't eat the paint or spill it in your drink.) Can wine be used as a paint thinner? There are actually a few artists who do use wine in their watercolor paintings to add extra dimensions and rich, full-bodied colors.
