Hello friends -
It's very unusual that I send out two Memos in a month, but I have THREE important things to share that are upcoming in November:
1 - our MEMBERS MEETING on Nov 15
2 - I want to make sure I have everyone listed below on my Christmas Shop list that has asked for space. Several of you have been added to my list since the Oct 16 email and we still have a little room. I won't go over all the details again. If you need ALL the details, dates and instructions please refer to this: https://www.monroewaltonarts.org/members-memo/updates-10162020
3 - Christmas Open House on Nov 12 - bring your friends and family to shop!
This is our annual "business" meeting - but we will try to make it interesting! No need to RSVP, just come!
We invite all our current MEMBERS to our Annual Members' Meeting which will be held Sunday, Nov 15 from 4 -5 pm.
Business to cover:
Our Gifts from the HeART Shop officially opens Thursday, November 5 but as much as possible I urge you all to have your booth installed by October 30.
I have these members signed up so far to have a booth at the shop:
Todd and Robin Tetterton
If your name is not on this list and you've told me you would like to be in the shop, please remind me. :-)
We still have room for a few more artists/artisans so please contact me ASAP if you want space.
Instructions, dates, etc: go here - https://www.monroewaltonarts.org/members-memo/updates-10162020

**A COUPLE OF REMINDERS FROM THE LAST MEMO**
FALL FEST OCTOBER 31
We will have a pottery workshop and pop-up shops. I have these artists listed for a pop-up shop. Washington Street will be closed so there is plenty of room for booths. Bring your own tables and tents (if you have one) and chairs.
Please let me know if I've left you off the list or if you'd like to be added:
We are seeking artists, artisans and writers to instruct community art classes. These classes can cover just about any artistic genre, e.g., painting, fiber arts, mixed media, jewelry making, writing, various crafts, etc.
Instructors design their classes: examples -- a one-time workshop, a course of 3-6 weeks or weekly on-going classes.
We have a class proposal worksheet for you to fill out. This helps you walk through exactly what you need (and we need) to start teaching here - and includes our policies.
We also have an interview/mock class process for new teachers - you must demonstrate your project/work to our education chair.
We have fabulous teachers here and wish to expand our offerings of more creative and fun classes to our community, taught by artists who also love to teach!
We offer classes for all ages - children, teens and adults - and all levels of experience - beginners to advanced.
Hope Reese, director of Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts since February, 2017.
