Basic Membership Requirements for the Murfreesboro Art League
Please read this notice before signing your membership application.
The Murfreesboro Art League is a non-profit studio/gallery located in Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village. We welcome people of all ages and talents to become members and join us in our activities. Children should be accompanied by an adult at our regular classes. We are happy to provide a space to work and hang art for everyone, from the beginner to the experienced professional. Throughout the year we will provide classes meant to teach and refine your artistic talent. We will try to have at least one class in drawing media, oils, acrylics, watercolor and something different to most of us such as mixed media, tempera or casein each year.
In return for the low cost of membership, I will help keep the gallery running. {Each member is expected to work between 3 and 6 hours per month during the open season (April through December) either by working shifts on the weekends OR by serving as an officer or board member, or discuss an alternate plan with the board. *If you cannot fulfill this responsibility, you can swap out with another member.} I also agree to keep our gallery clean and organized by taking the time to prepare my workspace and clean it up afterward. {When you come in, protect your own workspace by covering the table with newspaper provided by the gallery.  (We accept your donation of used newspapers.) Before you leave, clean up any messes that naturally occur when doing art projects. These include, but are not limited to: cleaning the table, returning your chair to storage, cleaning the floor under the table, and wiping down the sink in the restroom after cleaning brushes.}
·  Watercolors can be safely flushed down the drain in the restrooms. Be sure to clean the sink when you are finished.
·  Acrylics: Clean your paintbrush out as well as possible in a paper towel first, then in your water container; then throw the water outside in the grass. DO NOT PUT ACRYLIC PAINT IN THE DRAINS! You may then clean your brushes out with soap and water in the restroom. Use lots of water to flush the drains; then clean up any mess you made in the sink.
·  Oils: Clean your brushes out as well as you can with turpentine and wrap them up to take home and clean.

 I have read the membership agreement and wish to become a member.
