ST. CHARLES ART GUILD TO HOST ART FAIR
St. Charles Art Guild
The St. Charles Art Guild is hosting an Art Fair on April 10, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall of the St. Charles United Methodist Church,1905 Ormond Blvd. in Destrehan.
“Providing programs for adults is a vital part of what we do in the guild,” said Kerry Allen, this year’s Vice-President and workshop chairperson. “Our charter members created the guild in 1967 to have artistic adult camaraderie, and to give youngsters in grades one through three the chance to have positive early art experiences."
The workshop was created to introduce visual art media techniques as a means of self-expression, and to provide a jump start to adults who may have strayed from a past artistic beginning. By the end of the day, each participant will have a complete, matted piece that will be exhibited for one month at the Destrehan library.
All materials will be provided and participants will leave with a bag of supplies to continue their practice at home for a cost of $15. Participants may bring a bag lunch or visit one of the local eateries in the area. Attendance is limited. To register, call Kerry Allen at 504-756-1277.
To help with their community art programs, the guild receives grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism in cooperation with the LA State Arts Council as administered by the Houma Regional Arts Council, the River Regions Arts and Humanities Council, and the St. Charles Women’s Club.
