Is it MAD or is it The D.R.A.W.? It’s both!
In 2019, MAD and The D.R.A.W. joined forces to fulfill their shared mission to provide art education offerings for people of all ages in Kingston.

The Creative Economy
With opportunities to show and sell your work dramatically diminished, MAD is providing a new way to keep your art in front of the public. We will devote our homepage slide show to the artists and arts-related businesses listed in our FREE online registries.
Photographer Tom Hackett received a call from a local realty office who liked his work and invited him to hang a one-man show this summer—BECAUSE they found him listed in our registries! Be like Tom. Promote your work. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. Do it today.

Welcome to The D.R.A.W.!

This marriage of the practical and the creative “is a win-win in our community,” says Anne Bailey, president of the MAD board of directors.

For nearly 48 years, Carol Struve was a nurse who also pursued art studies (earning a BFA and MFA in painting), taught art to college students, and exhibited her work throughout the US. Now retired from nursing and focused on her own art making and teaching for The D.R.A.W., she says, “As an artist and teacher, it’s about the journey rather than the destination.”
