Meetings

     DK's regular monthly meetings, which are free and open to the public,  feature informal live demonstrations by  noted artists working in a variety of media, genres, and styles. 

     At the meetings, members may also select DVDs to borrow  from DK's extensive lending library of art education materials.
    Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month from September through June, usually in the H-E-B Meeting room at the Hill Country University Center,  2818 E Hwy. 290  in Fredericksburg.

Support

 Die Künstler von Fredericksburg is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.  

Its activities are funded by modest annual membership fees, sales commissions from the November Fine Art Show & Sale, and by donations from individuals.
    DK also gratefully acknowledges grant support from the City of Fredericksburg, from Gillespie County, and from the Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance/Oktoberfest.
    In addition, we recognize with ongoing appreciation the countless hours DK's dedicated team of members volunteer throughout the year.  Thank you all, again and ever.
