The River Clay Fine Arts Festival (RCFAF) has evolved into an amazing arts centered event in Decatur, AL! RCFAF brings together people from across the region to celebrate visual arts in all its forms. The juried fine arts festival includes an artist market featuring local and national artists, children’s art activities, student art exhibits and much, much more.

In addition to experienced artists, the festival celebrates up-and-coming artists from local schools. This year we were pleased to provide $7,500 worth of funding towards art initiatives within districts, public and private, throughout Decatur City and Morgan County. This is made available through an annual grant opportunity provided to our local art teachers.

“We are teaching the kids about this. They are going to remember, Decatur has always had River Clay!” – Mary H. Reed, Artist Liaison

In recent years we have had the opportunity to fund a wide variety of visual arts projects including stained glass, photography, pottery, a natural dye garden and more. The RCFAF grants provide a new and exciting way for our students to experience art and its diverse mediums. We celebrate these teachers and appreciate the work they do to cultivate tomorrow’s artists!
