The arts are essential to the quality of life in Frederick. The FWCC Arts Community Service Program allows our members to participate in, promote and support a broad spectrum of activities that enhance the arts. Many of our members also support local arts by attending plays, exhibits, lectures, and concerts as a group.
In partnership with community arts organizations and as a club, we participate in:
Youth Art: (click this link for guidelines and application)
Sponsor an annual contest with monetary awards for middle and high school students placing first, second, third and honorable mention. In the past few years, we have received over 100 works of art from Frederick County middle and high schools.
In partnership with the Frederick Community College, the student art is on display for the community to enjoy. Our members raise money to provide the monetary awards and to make contributions to district and state youth art.
Maintain a membership in Arts council; staff the volunteer coordination booth during the annual 2-day Frederick Festival of the Arts.
Member Projects: Within our club, there are many talented artists and artisans who lend their talents to bettering our community. Recent projects include:
· Painting wine bottles for the state convention
· Crafting handmade products to be sold at Christkindlesmarkt
