FCAA in 2017

Our winter members show was held in January at the Delaplaine.

Two TED Talk videos featuring artists discussing their work was presented at the February meeting, complete with drinks, popcorn, and candy.

Our first pop-up store hosted art, music, and poetry at Le Parc bistro in March.

On April 10, Elisabeth Vismans will lead a complimentary hands-on intuitive painting class. Come meet some new people and bring a friend.

There will be a summer members show at Frederick Community College from June 10 - July 10.

You'll want to clean out your studios because June's meeting will be a YArt Sale. You can bring items to sell or offer for a free-will donation to the FCAA. There will also be time for a "show and tell," with artists bringing in one current piece to share.

There will be an annual picnic this summer. The date is host's choice.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend all members meetings. They are at 7:00 p.m. at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center in Frederick, Maryland.
