The weekend kicked off with a Welcome Reception for instructors, students and participating business owners. This was held on Friday evening at the Albatross Hotel. Guests from as far away as North Carolina, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Upstate NY mingled, and met their Instructors and fellow students while enjoying refreshments from our local businesses, Cheese on Main and Yvonne’s Café. Hey, the Mayor even showed up to wish us well on our "maiden voyage"!
Saturday evening a Vendors Art Fair was held at the Youth Temple. Workshop Instructors were able to offer their art work and supplies for sale to students and the public. Everyone was very pleased with the turnout and sales!
Students really enjoyed their classes and had fantastic works of art to bring home with them. For many, it was their first time in Ocean Grove and they fell in love with this quaint little Victorian town.
We were so thrilled by our flagship event that plans are already being made for next year by students, instructors and the Chamber of Commerce! Thanks again and see you in 2013!!
