Mill Street Loft Register Now for Spring Classes Call 845-471-7477 A recent study by reveals that although top employers throughout the nation are actively seeking creative minds, there are simply not enough creative people in the job market. "We know business executives are seeking creative people to solve complex problems, and without a doubt, this ability is directly related to par- ticipation in the visual arts," says Todd Poteet, director of the Art Institute at Mill Street Loft. If you're looking to give your creative chance to develop creative skills, don't miss class sign-ups at Mill Street Loft. This spring, MSL will be offering a variety of courses for individuals age 4 and up. Whether you're just beginning to draw or you're a master sculptor, Mill Street Loft has something for you! What's New at MSL? Character Design! Mill Street Loft has developed a brand new class your kids will be begging to take. Students in this course develop a unique char- acter of their own design. The class combines story board creation, prop and costuming, as well as sculpting. At the end of the course, students will have a 1/5 scale model of their character to take home, mimicking the creative process for 3D animations. Does my kid belong at MSL? "Our students often tell me they've found their home at Mill Street Loft," says Poteet. "The best thing about Mill Street Loft is that we give our students the freedom to express themselves rather than editing down their artistic voice." Mill Street Loft's students are diverse, representing 37 area schools. This diversity affords MSL students the opportunity to develop lasting friendships with other like- minded artistic kids from a wide range of backgrounds. Why choose MSL? "All of our classes are taught by award-winning, working art profes- sionals who are locally and nationally renowned," says Poteet. Each teacher at Mill Street Loft brings unmatched experience to the classroom and men- tors students in order to develop their creativity and artistic vision. Please visit for more information about available classes. Todd Poteet of Mill Street Loft explains the intricacies of one-point persepective to a young artist.
