Arts and crafts centers are one of the numerous services provided by the Army's Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) program. Most of the arts and crafts facilities, which are available at many of the major Army installations, offer military families a wide variety of classes, programs, and activities for people of all ages and skill levels. Furthermore, if you're working on a project in your home such as a quilt or scrapbook, and space is an issue, many of the centers provide tables and encourage crafters to bring in their projects and work where they have ample room.

For an overview of the entire program, visit this website. Below, we've included info an links to centers at some specific military installations. .
