December 2013 - HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
The Villages Art League (VAL) is made up of artists working in various mediums and at diverse skill levels. We are residents of The Villages, Florida and welcome other Villages residents that are interested in art to come join us.
We meet at 9:00am on the first Monday of each month at the Saddlebrook Recreation Center. Saddlebrook is located on Buena Vista Boulevard near the Polo Field and Softball Complex.
The VAL Artist of the Month for December is Kathleen Hanson.
Please see the Artist of the Month page to learn about our honorees and browse our archives of past honorees.
If you would like to be considered for Artist of the Month, contact Kathy Hanson at (920) 265-4333.
