To date, courses have included: drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry making, photography, printmaking, pastels, paper making, book making, painted furniture, woodworking, design, color theory, calligraphy, quilting and more.
The Center also hosts a variety of lectures, special events, art trips and artist's talks, in addition to monthly exhibits in seven beautiful galleries that highlight the wide variety of artwork being produced locally, by both professional and amateur artists. Besides the main galleries, we also offer exhibits in threelibraries in Frederick County.
As a community education center, we also provide services for people with special needs. With the support of generous community donations, we offer many free classes for economically disadvantaged children and teens, senior citizens, and physically challenged adults.
