MSS stands with all those suffering

from racism and violence

We are replacing our annual May Art & Craft Sale with a virtual fundraiser:

Get the Picture!

Send us a photo of your beloved pet and we’ll turn it into a beautiful work of art (a drawing, painting or pastel creation!) Your donation will also help Middlebury Studio School keep going!

No pet? No problem.
Challenge us with a photo of something else that is near and dear to you and we will try to draw it!

In this time of social distancing, let’s spread some joy in our community through the power of creativity!

Along with other small business throughout our state we have had to close down. Traditionally we would be getting ready for our Annual May Sale, which we had to cancel. So in its place we decided to try a virtual art fundraiser to help subsidize our overhead and at the same time we hope to spread some joy, creativity and laughter in the community.

Know that your donation will go directly to keeping Middlebury Studio viable. DONATE >
