ArtFest is in the Air

The Art League has a weekend of fun events planned for this holiday season in another installment of our famous ArtFest. This year’s shows are great opportunities to enjoy some art and find gifts for whoever’s on your list. Don’t forget to save the date! All the ArtFest events are at our Madison Annex, 305 Madison Street in Alexandria.

ArtFest 2010
Our Lively Annual Open House and Holiday Party
Friday, December 2, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
The Art League throws its annual holiday party for ArtFest 2011 in the Madison Annex, our 3D instructional space. If you haven’t been to the Madison Annex, come see where the magic happens and see some live demonstrations from artists in a variety of 3-D media. Plus, from live music, to a variety of art demos and exhibits, to ceramic and jewelry sales (open all weekend), to food and drinks, there’s something for everybody — and best of all, admission is free! This popular party kicks of ArtFest 2011 and is a great opportunity to enjoy some artwork and take some home as holiday gifts. Featuring one-of-a-kind collectables: Handpainted ornaments created by Art League artists! These little works of art make unique stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, and are the perfect way to start an “heirloom” ornament collection for your family.
