Freedom Arts Fall Art Programs

 Freedom Arts will offer art instruction for all ages. Dates and times are subject to change. For class confirmation and registration please visit:
Starting in the Fall 2019, Greg and Christy Kessinger will be taking over as administrators for the Freedom Arts Programs (an affiliate of the Freedom Area Rec Council). They moved to Woodbine in 2005 and have been actively involved in Freedom Rec. clubs with  their children.  Both of their children have participated in art programs run by FARC. They are very excited to help continue the programs that Vivian has been running since 2008. They plan on keeping programs similar to past offerings. With the help of the talented Artist/Instructors involved in Freedom Arts, they hope to make a few changes to challenge, excite, and educate artists in the area. They also hope to provide opportunities for area artists to participate, educate, and elevate the art programs in our community. Please look for future communications from them and help them continue to advance the Arts in Carroll County.
