Artful  Circle

Our Lectures are Entertaining and Educational

Artful Circle can bring the love of art directly to you with our wide array of lectures.
We can present one of our many lecture themes or can customize a topic specifically to meet the needs of your organization. We bring the lecture to your venue –clubhouse, church, synagogue, auditorium, or classroom, etc. – and it will be an event your organization will surely remember! Artful Circle’s goal is to entertain and educate audiences with a lively show filled with Franklin’s uniquely charming, yet approachable manner and complemented with Debbie’s exciting visuals.
