The Art League Marco Island’s Center for the Arts worked with focus and determination to relieve their debt. Now, as the new year approaches, Executive Director D Michaels, Ken Stroud, Board President Elect, Art League staff and volunteers are anticipating another active and successful year.

The Artistree in Motion tree painted by Inez Hudson is one way of thanking the Art League’s Angels of the Arts, Benefactors, staff and volunteers. It’s important though to remind the community of Marco Island to volunteer and support local associations and organizations.

Classes beginning in November at the Art League are numerous. Watercolor, pastels, stone sculpture, photography and even learning the harp are being offered. December 7th, the 1st Tuesday Art @ Five Social is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Complimentary Appetizers and wine plus Outdoor Artists Exhibit Documenting Beauty and Change will be highlighted.
