Presidents' Message

The Art Guild of Tellico Village welcomes all artists, experienced or novices, and anyone interested in learning about art and creativity! The Guild's mission is to offer members opportunities to learn and grow in their artistic endeavors as well as celebrate the art our members have created. 

Our Monthly meetings are every 3rd Thursday from September to May. Our first meeting of the 2020-2021 year is scheduled for September 17th. Bill Capshaw, a long time art teacher from Oak Ridge Art Center, will give a presentation on ceramic art.

At the moment the Chota classrooms are closed so our classes are suspended.  We are seeking new ways to offer classes during these challenging times; please send us any and all ideas! 

Please explore our website to learn more about our meeting and learning opportunities.  We post calendar events here and on Tellicolife.  Art Guild members receive announcements by email; to become a member please see our Membership Page.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.
