Guest Artist Demonstrations
Guest artist demonstrations are held on Saturday afternoons at the Guild studio once a month (usually the first Saturday with one or two exceptions) except in January & December. Members and the general public are welcome, and can be sure of an engrossing demonstration by a professional artist at work. The entry fee of $10.00 for members and $12 for non-members includes a delicious afternoon tea. Demonstrations run from 1:30pm to approx. 3:30pm.

"Artist of the Month" Competition
This is also an opportunity for members to enter their art work each month for judging by the visiting guest artist demonstrator. See “Artist of the Year Award”. Members are encouraged to participate in the Competition by exhibiting their own art work in the Guild studio on demonstration days. The subject should relate to the theme specified for that month’s demonstration, listed above and in the Guild’s bi-monthly newsletter, Palette News. The medium, however is open, in order to encourage maximum member participation. Entries are judged by the guest artist, and points awarded that ultimately determine the prize winner of the Guild’s Artist of the Year competition.
