Auction to Support the Guest Artist Program
On June 21, 2009
The PAPCG Guest Artist Program
Who doesn’t like to take classes with nationally known artists like Jana Roberts Benzon, Barbara McGuire and Lynne Anne Schwarzenberg? Now, imagine doing it for free. You can if you’re a member of the Philadelphia Area Polymer Clay Guild and you attend one of our Guest Artist meetings. The Guest Artist Program is a unique and valuable feature of the PAPCG. Even if you can’t attend, handouts and notes are made available to all paid members!
The program works like this: A nationally known artist agrees to give a class to a number for Guild members who pay class tuition. We hold the class the Saturday before our scheduled Guild meeting. The artist returns on Sunday for the meeting and teaches and demonstrates for the entire Guild. Or, the teacher can elect to come to the Guild meeting only, as a guest teacher. In both instances, the Guild pays the teacher’s fees for the Sunday meeting out of money raised from member dues Guild fundraisers like the upcoming auction on June 21.
Can you imagine getting more bang for your buck than joining the Philadelphia Area Polymer Clay Guild? No other guild in the country has a program like this. Come on and join our Guild! What are you waiting for? To join go, to our web site, www.pacg.org and follow the instructions. Dues support the program at $40/year.
Our upcoming Art Raffle will be at our June Meeting. You will be able to view many of the items online May 31 and even buy and allocate your raffle tickets online if you can’t attend! Please support this wonderful program by bidding on wonderful items by local and nationally known artists. Watch your email for more information, or visit our website on May 31: www.papcg.org. We hope to raise $800 to finance two Guest Artist visits with the auction. We are still accepting donations for the event. Please email Terri at email@example.com if you would like to make a donation!
