YAG Has Openings for new students in 2014

VBSNA's Youth Art Guild is open to students ages 11 - 17 who wish to explore nature through art.  As members of a nature art guild, young artists explore and create nature-themed works, and meet with guest artists of varying interests.  While the style and media varies (ex. anime, whimsical sculpture, botanical/scientific illustration, impressionistic painting, etc...) the central theme always celebrates Nature. 

The guild is non-competitive, individualistic, interactive & supportive.  Group size is small - limited to 20 registrants. 

Each session welcomes a different mentoring artist and includes outdoor sketching & journaling as well as indoor work. 

Sponsored by Friends of Volo Bog - $30.00 annual fee plus $10.00 monthly fee covers most supplies.  Sponsor Reprographics Imaging and Art Supplies of Crystal Lake provides guild members with discounts on art materials - visit them at   For more information contact Stacy Iwanicki at or 815-344-1294.
