  • For more than 25 years, the St.Michaels Art League, Inc. has helped make St. Michaels an art destination and a center for the arts for everyone. 

    The St. Michaels Art League and the Brown Box Theatre Project of Boston are partnering in an exciting opportunity to bring the lighthearted Shakespeare comedy, "The Taming of the Shrew" to Muskrat Park in St. Michaels on Friday, September 11th, at 7:30pm. 

    The Brown Box Theatre Project  have performed free to the public as part of their ongoing initiative to create theatrical experiences that entertain and excite audiences in communities with limited access to live theatre.  And at the best possible price....FREE!   This is their fifth year of providing a production that will include Boston, Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City, Snow Hill, Berlin, Ocean Pines, Salisbury, Lewes, Pocomoke, and for the first time, St. Michaels.

    SMAL Childrens Art

    Childrens’s Art Day each September is a must for bourgeoning Picasso’s. Coached by artists from the Art League, kids of all ages create their masterpiece ‘en plein air’ in Muskrat Part. The oversized smiles of kids who leave with their very own masterpiece brings families back each year.

    The third Monday morning of each month (Sept – May) the Art League sponsors free Artist Demos for its members and guests. You can watch how artists develop a painting from beginning to end in watercolor, oil, pastel, acrylics – each month a different medium.
