LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) — The Affordable Arts Festival is happening on Sunday. A handful of people lined up before 5 a.m. this morning to get in line for great deals.

This art show is not like your typical art show, the goal of this show is to really make art accessible to everyone instead of the super steep prices that are at many art shows. 

Every year in August on the campus of the Arapahoe Community College, over 165 artists from around the country come to Colorado to offer everyone the unique opportunity to buy fine art for $100 or less. 

This festival has been ranked in the top 40 arts festival in the country six years in a row.

All the ticket money goes to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation to help fund scholarships for future artists that are enrolled in the art classes at the college. 

So far, the festival has raised over $142,000 for the foundation. Just one more way the Affordable Arts Festival benefits the arts and artists.
