Join us for a fun filled night at The Peoria Art Guild. We welcome guest curators Greg Batton and Dan DiOrio who are collecting "Found" Art from the Peoria area to be auctioned off by Greg Batton to raise proceeds to go towards The Peoria Art Guild's scholarship fund.
The Peoria Art Guild is very excited to be bringing back our MAP program. MAP stands for Mentor Apprenticeship program. The program was started initially by The Peoria Art Guild in 1990 with the guidance of John Heintzman and Susie Best. It has had significant changes throughout the years and we are excited to bring it back to Central Illinois with the lead of John & Jeff Heintzman. This program allows High School students to explore their talents under the direction of professional local artist mentors & instructors.
The apprentices will be exposed to painting, ceramics, photography, sculpture and printmaking. They will work directly with established local artists with experience in exhibition work. We want to give them a jump start into the life and works of a professional artist in Central Illinois.
Funds from this event will help to re establish the MAP program so we can offer these services to the students at no charge. We will also set aside additional funds to give other children who aren't able to afford our art classes opportunities.
