 We appreciate our community's support!  

 

We would like to thank Paula Talty, Superintendent of Cromwell Schools, for the 

generous donation of a room for the Guild to meet at Woodside Intermediate

School on 30 Woodside Road, Cromwell.

 

We would also like to give thanks to Middletown Commission on the Arts 

for awarding Art Guild of Middletown $500 for the support of Workshops

and demonstrations in 2015.

 

Both donations have allowed us the opportunity to lower the cost of our workshops and 

other activities which, in turn, will allow more people who are interested in 

the arts to take part.

 

A Big Thank You to both Supporters!

 

If you would like to make a donation please contact

IIt is a wonderful gift for someone or in honor of someone 

who is interested in the arts.
