Good morning Visual Arts parents, students and supporters! 

Thank you to our faculty and guild volunteers for supporting I Am Booker T Day. And welcome to our newest guild members!

Current members, we hope you'll renew your membership in the guild for the 2024-25 school year. All our members receive our weekly newsletter, but with a sponsorship (starting at just $25), you'll have access to the online directory, receive guild merch, and your student will be eligible for two, $150 grants per school year and the $1,500 scholarship senior year. 

If you were considering a donation in any amount to support the Visual Arts Guild, now is a great time to DOUBLE the impact. In honor of Dallas Arts Month, the Giana Foundation Fund and Communities Foundation of Texas are matching donations, dollar for dollar, to nonprofits supporting arts, culture and humanities. You can get more information and make a donation on the Visual Arts Guild's North Texas Giving Day portal.
