Guild August E-News Update

Art is an expression not only of who you are, but of whose you are.

- Richard Caemmerer, Jr.


We are now in Week Seven of a truly blessed Summer season.  If you haven't been able to join us this Summer, we have some great offerings for the Fall season, and next Summer's schedule, Jubilee, is already available!



Samarya Yoga Teacher Training, September 11-25.  This two-week residential training is an opportunity for self-reflection and exploration through the practice and teachings of yoga.  As you explore yoga in relationship to your own lives and belief systems, you will discover your ability to share these ancient healing techniques in your own community.


Meet the Guild in Tacoma, October 10, 2:00-4:00pm, Christ Episcopal Church.  This free event will feature the induction of our newest Guild Master, Jean Tudor, at her home church in Tacoma.  Appetizers from the produce of L'Arche Farm, local craft beer, the Guild Traveling Art Exhibit, and a beautiful concert on Christ Episcopal's amazing organ will also be featured.  Invite your friends and celebrate with us!  Please RSVP your intentions to


Fall Art Week, October 25-31.  Three great classes from which to choose!  Enameling: Transformation by Fire with Jean Tudor, Beadwork: On & Off the Surface with Larkin Van Horn, and Exploring Mosaic in Autumn Colors with Anne Mullenniex.


Something Magical Fundraiser Concert, November 14, Trinity Lutheran Church, Lynnwood, 2:00-4:00pm.  Join us for a wondrous celebration of all who make the Guild the sacred space it is...including you!  The event will feature a String Quartet from Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, the Guild Traveling Art Exhibit, a Farewell Address from Director Dan Oberg, and a Wine & Tapas Reception.  Tickets will be available soon!  Mark your calendars and we'll look forward to seeing you there!



Last spring, the local elementary school, Beaver Valley, received grant money from the Cascade Education Foundation, which the Guild matched, for their kids to have three weeks of art experiences at the Guild.  This fall, thanks to generous support from the Community Foundation of North Central Washington, we get to do it again!  Thanks for all your generous donations which enable the Guild staff to bring beauty and creativity to those who can't otherwise afford it.
