Art Card Project – Talents needed !

Attention MIWC Artists 

We need your talents to make this year’s Art Card project another success. Two years ago, 10 MIWC artists created original artwork for notecards that raised €600 for the club.

This year we are assembling works of solely graphic mediums (paintings, drawings etc. no photos).

Please contact Renee at rbuenting@gmail.com by April 10 if you are interested. We will be scheduling our brainstorming meeting to decide on the theme in April.
