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.

Cecil County Arts Council Speaking Engagement
<p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Good morning.</strong>
We spoke at the photo show opening about the possibility of your addressing Cecil County photo students from across all five high schools about what you do creatively, as an independent businessman, and professional photographer.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">The date is November 13, 2015. We are there from approximately 9am - 11:00am. We would like a speaker to address students, for about a half hour, after the visitation and completing a worksheet. If this date does not work for you, I would also love to have my students meet you and see your work. I teach all photography classes. Thank you for your consideration.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">Have a blessed day.</p>
