The Stone Village Art Guild is a welcoming group of artists. They currently meet both in-person and on Zoom. The artists in the Guild come from both near and far. The group consists of artists of varying insights and starting points, using a variety of mediums. The group meets on Wednesdays from 2p.m. to 4p.m. at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Chester's Stone Village. All artists, new or experienced, are welcome to join the group!

Kathy Giurtino, of the Stone Village Art Guild, will also be offering a four-week drawing class at the library this spring. The class will meet from 2pm to 4pm on April 29th, May 6th, 13th, and 20th.
