One of the best ways to get a true experience of Delaware’s artistic talent is to visit the Millsboro Art League. This art gallery has a wide selection of art pieces made by local artisans. Visitors to the gallery can take home some of these fine artworks for a reasonable price as well.
The Millsboro Art League is conveniently located on Main Street. The gallery also hosts many different events throughout the year, including sponsored events and workshops. These are some of the ways the Millsboro Art League accomplishes its mission to promote creative arts, get people involved, and support budding and established artists.
For people looking to learn new art skills and get their hands dirty, there are a few interesting classes offered that may be worth considering. There is an intro to oil painting classes, which is suitable for all skill levels and tailored to the student’s individual painting and drawing interests, knowledge, and confidence level. Another fun class to consider is the fused glass jewelry class, which requires no experience to enroll. Budding artists can also sign up for a three-session class on creating a mosaic bird bath. In each of these diverse classes, there will be some unique handmade artwork for attendees to take home.
The gallery also offers some quilting workshops. These cover crumb quilt, surface design, and an introduction to boro stitching. When signing up for any of the classes and workshops offered, there is a discount offered to members of Millsboro Art League, while non-members would pay a slight premium.
One of the best ways to nurture a child’s interest and talent in art is to give them opportunities to practice and learn more about it. At the Millsboro Art League, children can participate in the Kid’s Art Camp offered during the summer. There is a K-2nd grade group and a 3rd -8th grade group. Additionally, the Family Fun Night held once a month gives families an opportunity to experience art, laughter, and creativity together. This event is open to the whole family starting at kids aged 5 years. All the events at the gallery are led by a team of talented instructors who are passionate about what they do.
