Mission_01

What if there was a way for you to do  something you’ve always wanted to do but just never had the opportunity? What if there was a way for you to get back into something you used to do but somehow haven’t had time for in ages?
What if there was a way for you to offer your kids superior art education beyond their school day; foster their creative talents; build towards higher education and future careers?
What if there was an entire group of people who supported your inner knowing that time to create and learn and practice artistic and handcrafting skills is important and worthwhile … even crucial to a person’s well being? …  and these people, not only supported the idea of creativity, but enabled it in every possible way?

York Town Craft Guild Mission Statement:
“To inspire creativity in the arts to all ages, regardless of income, through education.”

At YTMission_02CG we believe that education in the arts is not a spectator activity. We believe that students need to get their hands dirty if they want to advance in their discipline. That’s why our goal is to advance the artist’s skills and abilities by offering, not just classes with lessons that end when the class ends, but instead, classes that create a base on which the artist can keep building and learning throughout their lifetime.
Since the beginning, the Guild has kept to its tradition of educating, disbursing and practicing art and handcraft. And now, most recently, we have bent new resources, energy and elbow grease toward the revitalization of that already firm commitment to sharing skills and knowledge within the community.  Dreams and aspirations, yours as well as ours, along with working hard and playing hard, make the York Town Craft Guild what it is today.
Come and take advantage of all that’s being offered. Come and have some fun!
