Description:

"As a motto, "live cheap and make art" sounds like a denial...

"As a motto, "live cheap and make art" sounds like a denial of the good things while sacrificing to create something beautiful. But Bob and Rosemary Connelly, a Milford photographer and watercolorist who espouse this motto, are a husband and wife who don't seem to be suffering at all. For them, "live cheap and make art" is simply prizing experience over stuff." - DE News Journal

Delaware artists, we live in the historic small town of Milford, Delaware where we're always looking for interesting subjects to shoot and sketch. Rosemary paints in the studio and en plein air and teaches workshops in Watercolor Journaling. Bob is a photographer who also teaches Photography Workshops.

You can visit our Studio Thursday to Saturday from 11-4 or by appointment. If you are traveling a distance, call before making the trip to make sure we're there and not traveling ourselves!

Hope to see you soon at Live Cheap and Make Art Studios!

-Rosemary

Enjoyed walking thru and getting to see some of the artists at work. The art was wonderful! I look for ward to going back when there is an art exhibit going on. The staff at the desk was extremely helpful and informative.

The art studio is filled with lovely paintings and photos completed and taken by owners Rosemary and Bob Connelly. Rosemary does a remarkable job adding color and vibrancy to any subject she paints. Bob captures very interesting angles and perspectives of the items he photographs.

Attended a Watercolor Journaling Workshop at the Delaware Art Museum. Same class that is taught at the Studios. Fun for beginners and experienced "artisans" alike. We are beginners - less than beginners - no experience at all. Just enough drawing and painting is taught to help you jump right in, boost your confidence and start a fun journal of anything...

Thank you so much for this kind review! I cannot say how rewarding it is for me to be able to share something I enjoy so much and have it so well received. If you have any further question about materials or journaling in general, don't hesitate to contact me! Thank you for taking my workshop at Delaware Art Museum!... More
