Sections at the Guild

The St. Louis Artists’ Guild offers a number of Sections which explore topics of special interest to smaller groups within the Guild's broad range of offerings. Sections meet once a month. Meeting dates and places may vary, so sign up for our newsletter or follow our section blogs to stay current on meeting schedules.

Communication Arts Section

Meets: 
Saturdays 4 to 6 times a year, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
Cost: 
Free and open to the public

As anchor of this section, Missouri Professional Communicators (MPC) welcomes all people engaged in the exchange of ideas and information. The organization promotes, supports and advances opportunity, equity and excellence in communication. Speakers, workshops and competitions are planned to inspire and enrich personal creativity in this field which encompasses diverse fields, including editing, writing, advertising, creative writing -- such as novels, plays, short stories, speeches, etc., plus photography, videography, communications education, public information, public relations and broadcasting.

Meetings, open without charge to other sections of the St. Louis Artists' Guild and the public, begin with a light breakfast (donation is welcome) and highlight time to meet fellow communicators for opportunities to network and create new projects that enhance the growth of both groups as Artists' Guild efforts move forward to find a new home. A contest for members of MPC is held annually for published or transmitted work whereby a first-place award in the state contest may continue to be evaluated nationally in the same year's competition of the National Federation of Press Women which, like Missouri Professional Communicators, is open to both women and men.

Meets: 
Second Tuesdays, 7:00 - 9:30 pm
Cost: 
Free

The Illustration Section meets every second Tuesday at the St Louis Artists’ Guild. We always welcome artists to come and enjoy the speakers and demonstrations. Generally we have local artists - some of them our own section members, who discuss their current work and their career history. The discussions are entertaining, and more than a little inspiring to those of us in the audience.
