Artist In Action
You never know who is going to set-up in the gallery during the Wednesday "Artists In Action" gathering. Bring your supplies and work along with other artists in the open studio setting. Share your techniques and skills or sharpen your own. No registration is required and all are welcome! FREE! Come in every Wednesday from 10:30am - 2:00pm and spend the day with the CCAC.
The Cecil County Arts Council is open Monday through Friday, 10 am-4 pm, and the first Saturday from 10 am-2 pm (unless closed due to holiday). The Arts Council acts as a clearinghouse for information on the arts in Cecil County. Now in its 38th year, the Arts Council is a non-profit organization, dedicated to “presenting, promoting and sustaining the arts in Cecil County”.
Supported by funding from the state, county, individual contributions, and sponsorship, the Arts Council is also a membership organization! We would love to include you as a member of this wonderful group of people!
At venues all throughout Cecil County, the Arts Council provides opportunities for the residents of our community to experience art events such as free concerts along the waterfront, exhibitions, workshops, classes and much more!
The Arts Council also provides grant and scholarship opportunities to community residents, organizations and schools. Each year, the Arts Council offers over $20,000 in sub-grants and scholarships to applicants.

Plein Air Force
Great interest was shown by local artists for painting outside. A start-up session is scheduled for fall and will take place outside of the Arts Council building. The first session will inlude suggestions for Plein Air outing destinations in Cecil County. Of course, since it’s really all about art, the latter half of the session will be painting/drawing/photographing outside, around Rev. Duke’s cabin.
Suggested Supply List:
One of the neat things about getting together to paint will be sharing information, and learning new techniques. Another aspect can be that for many newcomers to Plein Air, painting out in public is more pleasant if you are with a group.
Let us know what day/time would work for you and if you wish to be kept up-to-date.
