The Stanislaus National Forest is calling for artists to apply for this year's Artist in the Woods program. Artists who are chosen will stay in a historic cabin in the high country along Highway 108 for two weeks in September or October.
The artists also will receive a stipend for meals, some travel expenses and some money to purchase supplies.
In return, the program asks that the artists donate an original artwork and teach a workshop for the public on their discipline. In the case of actors, storytellers, dancers and musicians, the donated work would be a performance. The Three Forests Interpretive Association is teaming with the Stanislaus National Forest to offer this program.
Information on Artist in the Woods, including digital copies of art donated in previous years, is available online at www.fs.usda.gov/stanislaus; by calling (209) 965-3434, ext. 5343; or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
