A new artist is featured at each event, and the series is free and open to the public and audiences of all ages! No registration necessary.
“Choosing a Creative Life”
Cheryle St. Onge, Artist
Creativity is innate, its value is well established in our day to day life and is often a highly sought attribute in our career path. It is unique to each of us and yet we often do very little to feed that wellspring. Come and hear some ideas and consider some ways to bring your creative point of view into your day to day and beyond into whatever your interests or drive may be.

Steve Medeiros, Special Veterans Day Artist Lecture
“Sketching in Baghdad” will be a talk relaying Steve Medeiros’ personal perspective on how art changed and evolved throughout his life so far. Being his constant companion in childhood, pausing in adulthood and subsequently reigniting during his Military Service. He will recount observations of Army life and serving in a combat zone.
The artist will also discuss how his experience of atelier training at The Academy of Realist Art Boston has elevated his painting from being a mere hobby to a meaningful creative outlet.
