Please be on the look out for an email with instructions about bringing your portfolio into the office this week.  I will have that sent to you in the next few days.

Art in Action Art Show

The Weatherford Chamber of Commerce is hosting an art show on Saturday, Sept. 19 from
9:00-4:00 at the Weatherford Farmer’s Market.  I’ve attached the application and would like to have students from ACU to participate.  “Art in Action” is having the artists actually doing their artwork throughout the day.  This allows the public to see an artist in action. Participants may sell their works but it isn’t required.

If you have any questions, please contact-
