 Linda Waite and Doris Porell will demo a variety of surfaces and painting techniques.  Participants should bring a table or floor easel and mounting board for taping  pastel paper.  There'll be some pastel paper and other surfaces along with pastels to share, but you can bring your own supplies if you wish. You may also bring a favorite photo to paint and I have some to choose from.

The Future of Sanford Art Association

posted Apr 2, 2018, 12:55 PM by Sanford Art   [ updated Apr 2, 2018, 12:56 PM ]

At our Members meeting on March 6th, due to declining business and insufficient funds to be able to sustain the cost of maintaining the Gallery, the vote was cast to close our physical presence in Sanford as of April 30, 2018.  However, this is not the end of the Sanford Art Association!  We will stay active in local and regional art shows and will look for locations to provide workshops to further educate and mentor artists in our area.
