Activities

The St. Michaels Art League, a 501(C)3 corporation, strives to bring art awareness to the community of St. Michaels, Maryland and its environs. Presently there are over 185 active members. Solid monthly programs that feature quality art talks and demos, and an open welcoming spirit are the heart of SMAL’s continued growth and success.

What else do we do? A dedicated core of volunteers hosts 6 to 8 classes and workshops each year; sponsors a free “Children’s Art Day” in the park; awards over $6,000 in scholarships each year to high school art students heading to college; annually donates original house renderings to the house tour hosts of “Christmas in St. Michaels”; holds weekly member Paint-Togethers; hosts an annual “Arty Party” with a special invited speaker, for members, their guests and the community at large; publishes a monthly newsletter; sponsors 8 to 10 successful judged art exhibits and shows at a variety of venues; and hosts “Paint the Town, St. Michaels”, a week-long summer art festival and competition in the heart of our town.

The Art League’s mission is to further the visual arts and bring art to our community. Members are encouraged to enhance their creativity, learn new skills, share ideas with others interested in art, and support each others artistic endeavors. Our members agree that the St. Michaels Art League is the creative spirit of this very special town and, most importantly, we have fun.
