The best kept secret in SaddleBrooke is the Art Guild. Did you know you don’t even have to be an artist to join us or take a class? It’s true! We welcome anyone who is interested in art, buys art or just loves an artist. The Art Guild is filled with friendly, happy, wacky folks. If this is the year you want to dabble a bit and have fun, improve your skill or try a new medium, the Guild is for you.
The focus of the SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild is education and we provide a wide range of classes and workshops for any skill level. On our website under the Classes tab, you will find a current list of classes and the registration form.
