The Artisans Village Guild has over one hundred paid members from all over the Lake Country and beyond. We are the only active artist guild in the area!
The Guild meets the second Friday September through June at 10:00 a.m. The Lake Oconee branch of The Peoples Bank has been generous in allowing us to gather in their downstairs meeting room.
For each meeting, there is either a Speaker or an activity, both cover a wide variety of topics. Prior to the 10:00 a.m. meeting, there is a social time that begins at 9:30 a.m.
The Guild provides numerous opportunities for members to participate in workshops, festivals, teaching opportunities and learning opportunities.
The Guild has so much to offer in a variety of mediums: acrylic, watercolor and oil painting, textiles, jewelry- to name just a few
