Welcome back art lovers!

We've had a busy summer since the last time we posted a blog. One car show, two Waterfires, more art exhibitions, our Summer Youth Arts program and a flurry of classes! It's been fun! Our latest exhibition showcases the talented members and art students of the Salvation Army of Sharon which includes illustrations and paintings. The Opening Reception for the show is Thursday, August 30, 2018 from 6 - 8pm." target="_blank">Salvation Army Opening Reception Page

We have more classes scheduled and will post more Daily Painting Ideas for September. Keep your eyes peeled for updates to the" target="_blank">Calender of Events and our" target="_blank">Facebook page for more class and event listings.

Our Summer Youth Arts Program was great too! We had a fun time learning about famous artists from the past and doing some fun and creative art projects. Next summer promises to be even bigger and better but we don't want to spill the beans on that just yet. ;-)

Thanks for reading and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Make Art. See Art.

A Great December

Thanks to everyone who made our first December a great one! We saw a lot of new, friendly faces and made some great new friends. Our newest Art Exhibition, Detours & Distractions by Rhonda Peterson, showcases some of her beautiful Impressionistic oil paintings from scenes around the New Wilmington country side and beyond. The opening reception went off without a hitch and was well attended. Thank you to all who came out to support Rhonda and a big thank you goes out to Rhonda's husband who made the spectacular appetizers.

The Holiday season is always a busy one and we've been busy as well coming up new classes and events for January. There has to be something more to do in January other than shoveling snow. So, check out our Calendar Page for all of our new exciting events!
