The guild also seeks to help local artists become recognized within the community. The guild is dedicated to providing educational arts programs, demonstrations and workshops.

The guild welcomes anyone interested in the arts to join. Any artist of any level is welcome to attend the guild’s meetings on the third Thursday of each month.
