Having just celebrated our first year in operation, we’re busy making plans for our second. We think our artists-teachers are amazing and so do you! Feedback about our classes has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re proud of the opportunities we’ve been able to offer our artists, both for additional income and new audiences for their work. And we’ve loved seeing new friendships, and new skills, develop over the class day.
We’re absolutely sure anyone and everyone would love learning and creating in the beautiful St. Croix Valley….really, how could they not? But as a new organization, we need your help spreading the word. MMFS is making an impact, but to reach a sustainable level we need help making sure that everyone in the Twin Cities area knows about us. After all, we’re essentially ‘the next neighborhood over’ from everyone in the metro region.
Would you share your experience about taking a class to a co-worker, or neighbor, or family? Even better, share a post on social media or in an email or text message about an upcoming class so that they can easily jump to our web site and explore for themselves. It sounds insignificant, but we rely on supporters like you to make an impact on our ability to increase the number of classes we can offer, and help us support art and artists in the St. Croix Valley.
Copy and share this carefully crafted, Midwest-filtered, non-bragging message:
“I’m following this new folk school/arts & crafts learning center in Marine on St. Croix. Check it out! Get away and explore hands-on learning as well as the beautiful St. Croix River valley. Don’t just take my word for it! Take a look: www.marinemillsfolkschool.org, and if you like it, be sure to tell them I sent you!”
