The Art Guild makes 20 percent of sales of students’ work.

Eight students from the Art Guild will participate in an art festival Oct. 1 at Jerry’s Art Supply Store, 7059 San Pedro Ave.
The festival will run 9 a.m.–5 p.m. in the parking lot.
Students will showcase and offer for sale original artwork.
It’s a great way for local artists to get together and display art while having fun, Art Guild President Justin Mendez said Sept. 15.
Festivalgoers can expect to see three to four pieces of art from each student, including drawings, sculptures and small paintings.
Each piece, depending on the work, will have its own price tag, but most will run from $10 to $45.
Twenty percent of sales will go back to the Art Guild for funding trips, events and art supplies. The remaining percent will go into the artist’s pocket.
In the first art festival there in March, about 200 people attended and the guild made about $100, he said.
Beside the money raised, the group had a great time getting their work exposed, Mendez said.
The event is free and open to the public.
