Be part of our story

The Mission of the Frederick Book Arts Center:

Teach the craft and techniques associated with the Art of the Book. Letterpress printing, printmaking, book binding, photography, and language arts are taught through a combination of workshops, field trips, school visits, and classes and exhibitions. 

All members of the community are welcome at FBAC.

Through your charitable donations we will be able to cultivate an environment for learning, growth, and development, and with your support, we can:

  • Continue providing great facilities for artists and the general public to use, and to learn in, through rental of equipment, and a diverse experience of classes, workshops, artists talks, and shows.

  • Make it through this incredibly difficult time and emerge stronger, open and accessible to everyone in the community. 

  • Continue looking towards the future with the development and construction of our new building slated to open in 2022.

 

As part of the year-end fundraiser we are making some items available to our donors that showcase what we do and are tokens of how much we care about our community.
