Fall Fundraiser

Our artists have accepted the challenge of painting small canvas boxes for a fundraiser.  They will be for sale soon.  This box was painted by Linda Feinberg.

We plan on selling the boxes for $12.  More photos and information will be posted when available.

If you have ideas for winter projects for our artists, please let us know. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, October 22nd.  We would enjoy working with students on murals.  They could be on movable panels instead of on walls.  Our artists completed three outdoor murals this summer and we would enjoy designing and painting indoor murals for the winter.

One of our artists has sent in a proposal to the city on a building that might be available and could be used as an art center. Stay tuned . . .
