There's a new Bob Ross-style art show on the Internet. It's called "Drawing Stories With Travis Millard," and it features the eponymous artist sitting at a wooden desk by a cozy fire, telling strange tales from his life while simultaneously drawing them. The intro for the series is a campy riff on nature shows from the 1980s. Millard runs through the hills of L.A., takes pictures with an old camera and plays with a cat. The drawing portion of the show is tongue-in-cheek PBS refinement.

The shift in ceramics from craft to art form was a quiet revolution in postwar Southern California. "Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945-1975" at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona explores that big topic through the influence of one man, Millard Sheets, a painter who taught and was an administrator at Chouinard Art Institute, Otis Art Institute and Scripps College. It was Sheets who brought the legendary avant-gardist Peter Voulkos to California to run the ceramics department at Otis.

Millard Fillmore, whose greatest contribution to history may have been installing a bathtub in the White House, was remembered on the 185th anniversary of his birth Monday with a small graveside ceremony here and with a "Millard Moment" in Baltimore. Thirty persons huddled under cloudy skies as a wreath was placed on his grave. And in Baltimore, Jeff Amdur planned a different remembrance. "I urge everyone to celebrate a Millard Moment," Amdur said.

Keith Millard lifted his left arm as high as he could, which wasn't very high at all. He uses the arm to do the tricks of his trade--rips and swims and all those other little moves that most spectators at an NFL game never see because they happen in the war zone known as the trenches. "I haven't been able to practice or lift weights for three weeks," Millard said. "All I've done is play in games which, no matter how much it hurts, is something I've got to do."

A great honor has come to me, leaving me breathless with delight and aware of my unworthiness to walk among the distinguished members of the Western States Millard G. Fillmore Appreciation Society. The letter came to me by recent post from Bob Coop, esteemed and quite daft founder of the worldwide organization. He refers to my column about his creation and adds, "We hope you will accept honorary membership in our organization. We would be proud to have you as one of us.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Alice Millard House, known as La Miniatura, is for sale, now on Labor Day markdown in Pasadena from $7,733,000 to $4,995,000. This paper reported last week that broker Crosby Doe has "an international art dealer with Japanese art-collector clients" looking to move the house to a place ominously identified as "elsewhere. " Presumably this elsewhere is nowhere in Los Angeles County. The immediate question is: Could this sale happen? Yes. Money, unchecked, trumps preservation.

Buried beneath layers of paint and plaster on a seemingly bare exterior wall at South Pasadena Middle School is a hidden art treasure over three quarters of a century old. Although you'd never know by looking at it, three highly detailed and colorful frescoes by acclaimed California artist Millard Sheets grace a wall of the school's auditorium. Because of a series of blunders, the once-stunning Italian Renaissance-style murals haven't seen the light of day for decades. Today, construction is in full swing at the campus.

About your article on the Millard Campground ["Nature to the Urban Rescue, Nov. 30]: Boo! I made it to the plank, with effort, but when I got to the first water crossing, I gave up because the family coming back from the falls said there were more like it ahead. At two weeks away from age 78, I do walk a lot, but the knees are not up to difficult places. Instead, please try the Fish Canyon Falls trail in Duarte-Azusa. Jack Collins Duarte

No one seems to know exactly when Millard Campground was converted from a day-use-only picnic spot near a nice waterfall into L.A.'s most convenient place to snore in the woods. Or, for that matter, if and when it might be converted back.
