We recognize that the enrichment of lives through the various mediums of art is an invaluable part of the educational experience. Our hope is to continue to provide not only a quality art education, but to inspire creativity itself, and sustain the faculty and supplies necessary for the production of student art. Our guild always encourages the participation of parents and friends, and is deeply grateful for continued community donations of time and money.
