Mission Statement

The Desert Spring Church is a place where we gather with other artists who want to enjoy, share, and learn more about our God given artistic talents.

Church family members, including adults and teens, participate in art exhibits and gatherings, collaborating with people specializing in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pen/ink, pastel, photography and many other medium.

The Guild holds quarterly workshops to share art techniques, resources, gather feedback, and inspire and motivate each other in their respective faith and artistic journey. Workshops will also provide an opportunity for guest speakers, book discussions, travel experiences, critiques, art demos and other art-related topics. Guild members may submit up to two pieces of original art per family for any of the exhibits held throughout the year. Come enjoy fellowship while creating beautiful art together.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them…” Romans 12:6
