   MONROE ART LEAGUE MEETINGS

                      Join us!

The Monroe Art League meets every fourth Tuesday evening
(March through December) at 6 p.m. at the United Way Building,
216 N. Monroe Street,  Monroe MI.

(A Special thanks to United Way of Monroe County for hosting our meetings)

  
                  Our next gathering:

   An unofficial informal get-together is planned for Tuesday,  February 28th,
       6 pm at the United Way Building.   Although this is not a regularly scheduled
        meeting, and no business will be discussed, it is for members and friends to
        get together informally and do art, see art, and talk art.

 

     Here's the invite from President Sandy:

      "I would like to get those of you who can, to meet me at the United Way on
        February 28 at 6:00 to just have an informal evening.  You can be painting,
        or doing artwork of your own, or just hanging out."

           A suggestion was made that this might be a "clean out your closet" night where
             we bring unneeded, and still usable supplies for an art supply swap meet.

           It would also be good to just casually talk about what each of you would like to
           see demonstrated or done during the year.  It is not for "business"
           but can be for a work together night, a brag night, or a swap meet.

           Bring your paints or pastels or clay or camera or fiber art or whatever you wish to work on or show us!   

           Remember: If the public school system cancels classes due to bad weather, we will not gather.
 

     

 

            Our next meeting:   

 Guests and New Members are always welcome!

      Tuesday,  March 28, 2017.

       2017 Dues are payable at this meeting
