Follow Your Art Donation

Follow Your Art Community Studios

Wakefield Co-operative Bank President, Jeff Worth, recently presented Follow Your Art Community Studios’ Executive Director, Kris Rodolico, with a $250 donation to help support FYA’s ongoing creative programs for all ages.

Follow Your Art (FYA) builds culture and community in Melrose by providing creative endeavors for all ages and abilities through visual arts, writing and performance. FYA opened in 2008 and has been bringing creative art experiences to the greater Melrose community both through its home studio on Main Street and through community outreach beyond the studio walls ever since. It offers a variety of classes, camps, and beautiful studio space for adult artists, writers, and those working remotely.

“We thank Kris for giving us a tour of FYA’s stunning space and sharing her mission and vision for continuing to nourish Melrose’s creative and collaborative arts culture,” said Jennie Terry, Marketing Manager at Wakefield Co-operative Bank. “Everyone here at the bank looks forward to being a community partner and neighbor on Main Street as we open our new location down the street from FYA later this fall.”
