Welcome to the Visual Arts Guild at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts!


The Visual Arts Guild is a volunteer organization that supports the students and faculty in the Visual Arts Conservatory. We provide volunteer support, funding for teaching supplies and equipment, grants and scholarships for student enrichment, and hospitality for students, college reps and gallery show receptions.



A special welcome to the students admitted for the 2024-25 school year! We hope you'll join the Visual Arts Guild or become a sponsor. If you weren't able to join us, or have questions after the event, please email btwvisualarts@gmail.com and we'll answer your questions or get you up to speed!


Follow us on Facebook or Instagram, join our mailing list, and come to an upcoming event and introduce yourself! Email btwvisualarts@gmail.com with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!






All are welcome to join the Visual Arts Guild. Our basic membership is free and includes access to our weekly newsletter. A sponsorship in the Visual Arts Guild is optional, but we recommend you consider a sponsorshiip to take advantage of all the guild offers. There are several sponsorship levels to choose from - and we're sure one is right for you!  


The first step in your guild membership is to create a FREE account with Membership Toolkit (MTK). If you have a Membership Toolkit account with another organization (perhaps the BTWHSPVA PTSA or another PTO or PTA), you can use those credentials to log in here.


Create a free MTK account or log in


Once you've created or accessed your MTK account, check out our sponsorship levels and join today! We support ALL students and welcome ALL parents, guardians and supporters. By coordinating events and activities and providing additional resources, we hope our involvement helps the Visual Arts faculty focus on developing the talents of our students.
