About Fool For Art

It started in 2006 with a simple question: how do we spread the word about the resources available to the community through John Tyler Community College?

The answer? Fool for Art, a community festival designed to give faculty and staff members at the College an opportunity to share their talents and the College’s offerings with the community through free educational sessions, hands-on activities and more one Saturday in April.

From the start, Fool for Art was a success. The first year, over 3,000 people came to the Midlothian Campus and learned about their community’s College. In recent years, the crowd has topped 6,000 people.

Fool for Art is free and open to the public.

Come to Fool for Art, and see why John Tyler Community College is not what you expect.
