My blog discusses a variety of ideas and methods of creating colorful art. I like to share new methods of painting or making interesting artistic pieces which I am always searching for. I enjoy using different mediums and painting various subjects as you can probably tell when looking at my website. Although I do not write a blog on a daily basis, I write my blog when I feel there is something interesting or new that other artists would like to know.

Wesley's Holiday Arts Festival on Marco Island, FL

| 28 November, 2018 17:02

Each year our local church sponsors an art festival on the first Saturday of December. This is an outreach program to our local community, Marco Island, FL.  Local artists pay no fee to participate, and the church provides a lunch to all visitors consisting of hotdogs, buns, apples, chips and cookies.

This year we are having 20 artists participating including painters, photographers, shell artists, quilters, stained glass and more.  There will be live Christmas music, and door prizes with donated art by the artists.  We will have a Prayer Table for people to request prayer, and a table for children to create art.

Many visitors and artists want to donate money, so we have arranged for all donations to go to our local Marco Island Center for the Arts for their Youth Art Programs.

This type of event provides a great opportunity for the church members to volunteer and work together to make the event successful. We have fifty church members on the Volunteer List to work for 2 to 4 hours during the festival to serve the lunch, welcome visitors, help artists with setup and tear down, direct   parking, and more. 

If you are in the area on Saturday, December 1st, 2018 stop by!
