or those of us who want to learn more about art from accomplished artists there are several nonprofit organizations that offer venues in the Berkshires. The Berkshire Art Association (BAA) connects the community with artists by providing outlets for their work, makes financial awards possible for high school art field trips, and among other projects they have helped local merchants and artists set up the First Fridays Artswalk under the auspices of Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. The Becket Arts Center has an art camp for children, provides exhibitions for local artists to present their work, and this fall will have a DriveAbout guide to help others discover the wonderful talent living here in the Berkshires. Visiting artists to the Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio are giving demonstrations of their medium on Fridays at their Lenox location. They also offer a fun August workshop that uses Color-aid papers and creative templates so participants can learn how artists choose color and can create their own masterpiece. The Guild of Berkshire Artists holds seminars, exhibits, and special events to educate their members and the public about art. The Northwest Connecticut Arts Council serves both the culture-loving public and the cultural community in its 25-town service area and surroundings by acting as a hub for all aspects of cultural information and resources to ensure that culture thrives in and around the region.
