This past year our community lost an encourager, supporter, painter, and all-round creative doer.
Known to most of us as “Buzz,” this art lover inspired many along their creative journeys. Now, just as Buzz encouraged so many of us, we’d like to pass it along and so we are setting up a fund we are calling “Creating Buzz” to encourage, promote and spread the word that creativity is not just superfluous fluff, it is an authentic way of living. We especially want to encourage our young creators!
Help Make it Happen:
Creativity is a way of living--Lets encourage our young artists, promote creativity, and spread the word!
If you would like to support our efforts donations may be made to:

More information will be coming on specific programs as we develop them.
Our 2020 BUZZ CAMP! - a Mini Art Camp and Show
WE'RE CREATING BUZZ!
What is this project?
This is a Free mini-art camp and show to be held this coming winter. The project is part of ArtWorks’ goal to promote and encourage the creative energy of our community’s youth.
The theme for the project is "50 Views From Our Town” with an ambitious goal of showing 50 finished works of art. Students are asked to look around the community and paint, draw or print their impressions. Subjects may include landscapes, buildings, people, pets, activities, still life images, whatever they see that represents this community.
Who is this for?
Students of middle school and high school age. Instructors are current and former art teachers.
