Awarded Grants


Fine Line Creative Arts Center Receives Grants From

The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley

The Fine Line Creative Arts Center community and artists would like to recognize the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for awarding:

In 2013 a $20,000 grant toward the lighting for our new Bolcum Road Entrance

In 2010 a $9500 grant to purchase and install new exterior doors for both the Kavanagh Building and Twin Silo’s Barn Buildings.

In 2007 a $4900 grant for the purchase and installation of a new electric kiln for the Ceramics Department.

These generous donation by the Foundation allow Fine Line to update the property and provide students with easier accessibility to the studios and increased security after hours.

Fine Line is one of only a few regional art centers in this country providing quality art education to promote exposure, expression and the celebration of art. Our goal is to nurture the creative spirit in an inspirational natural setting which engenders a sense of community. At Fine Line, internationally known artists teach a variety of workshops, the membership draws from the Chicago area and surrounding states. There are as many as 1100 students a year, a teaching staff of over 47, over 200 class offerings a year and the center is run almost entirely by volunteers.

These generous donations is a great example of giving exercised by the Community Foundation to further the artistic educational opportunities available to the community.

On behalf of the Fine Line Community, artists, board of directors, staff and volunteers, we can’t say thank you enough to the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for their continued support.

Lynn Caldwell, Executive Director
Fine Line Creative Arts Center
