They host a Children's Art Show in the spring presenting them with ribbons and also art supplies as prizes. "It is amazing what wonderful things the children produce," said members. "We also host an Art Exhibit in the spring that enables the community to see what talent our adult artists possess." Their art has been exhibited at the County-City Library and also businesses in and around Colorado City.They are a non-profit organization and the majority of the money raised goes straight back into their community. They also give a scholarship to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in some art form.
