Create Art – Manitowish Waters @ Manitowish Waters Community Center
Oct 17 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm


A group of artists have come together to offer an free “open studio” to area artists, visitors and whoever loves being creative.
The “studio” will be held at the Manitowish Waters Community Center on the first and third Tuesday each month from 10 – 3 (with exceptions for official town business and other regularly scheduled events).  This informal group welcomes all and provides a venue for people to share their creative energy.

Each person should bring projects and supplies for art projects that they are want to work on or are wanting to start.  Participants MUST bring floor and table protection (tarp, drop cloth, plastic sheeting – anything that will totally protect the tables and floors).  Bring a lunch to stay for the whole day or stay for just a few hours.
