education 

The Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg is committed to supporting Fine Art education in our community. In keeping with our mission we:

  • Host an Annual Youth Juried Show for Spartanburg County K-12 students in March

  • Donate art supplies to local art teachers and students through our Angel Tree Program each December

 

Thanks to the generosity of Judy and Brant Bynum, who will fund this $500 Award each spring, the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg can support Fine Art students in their passionate pursuit of a career in visual arts.
