Arts – Adult Programs
Please join us for a sunrise paint session at the Agricultural Heritage Center. We will open up the center early so that artists can capture the rising sun. Bring along your spirit of adventure, your own art supplies in the medium of your choice and a chair if you’d like. Artists can create work to submit for consideration to the 2018 Outdoor Creations exhibit. Children under 18 years of age are welcome to attend with adult supervision.
Maximum Participants: 20
Registration is required for this activity.
This September 30th will be the first annual St. Brigit’s Celtic Fest in Frederick Colorado, a day-long festival of music, food, dancing, games, benefiting several community service projects in Frederick.
Brigit, along with Patrick, is one of the patron saints of Ireland, and one of things celebrated about her is her patronage of the arts. So one of the features of Celtic Fest will be an art show and competition, open to artists of all age groups.
Entries can be in any medium, and must have a Celtic theme, in whatever way that speaks to you. Sources of inspiration might be Irish or Scottish landscapes, Celtic music, legends, or history. Celtic Fest especially encourages you to research Celtic and Irish symbols for inspiration for your pieces.
Each artist may enter up to three pieces, with an entry fee of only $5 per piece. Art can be for sale (although this is not required,) with 30% of the sale price going to support Brigit’s Bounty and other community service projects in Frederick. Entry deadline is Monday Sept 25th, art drop-off is Sept 27-28, and Celtic Fest event is Saturday Sept 30th.

And while you’re there, check out the wonderful music and other fun events!
A special thank you to everyone who participated and to all of the volunteers who made this event happen!
