 KIFA - THEN & NOW

FOUNDED IN 1963

Art Is Alive.

Celebrating 51 years during 2014

KIFA is a non-profit (501c3) all-volunteer organization, funded by donations and memberships. Our programs continue to grow, offering art classes in various media, including; painting, children's art classes, wood carving, photography, precious metal, clay, and more. We have specialized workshops for children and young adults. We continue to work with the county schools by hosting our Annual March Student Showcase--held
for the past 23 years.

Our goal for the next decade is to expand the cultural and artistic climate of Queen Anne's County by encouraging participation in, and promotion of, the visual arts. We approach these goals through educational programs, exhibits, competitions, events, and cooperation with the public schools, the Chamber of Commerce and other organizations.
