All levels of painters are welcomed with open arms. The focus will be on drawing, edges, values and color.

Carol makes these classes fun and inspiring, while supporting you to the next level of your growth!

Milford TV Art Show Nov-Dec 2018 – Small Works

It’s time for our annual Small Works Show at the Milford TV Station!

Every two months we rotate the art show at the Milford TV Station. We arrange our drop-offs on the last Thursday of the month preceding the show. The drop-off for the upcoming November-December 2018 show on the theme of “Small Works” is Thursday, October 25th, 2018 from 6-8pm.

“Small Works” simply means any smaller-sized items you might want to feature. Many people come through the Milford TV station looking for holiday gifts, and smaller-sized items are more likely to sell. “Small” is of course relative. If you normally make all your artwork in 5×7 size, that is perfect. If you normally make massive 3-feet by 5-feet images, you might want to scale it down a bit for this show.

This date is also the take-down for the existing “Autumn Splendour” show. If you’re not able to make it for this pickup date, please wait until after the reception to stop by and retrieve your art. That way the show is up for its full publicized period
