They host a variety of events and classes, while members can also feature and sell their artwork in the guild’s 3rd Street Gallery. You’ll also see their rotating art exhibits around town thanks to their ‘Art in Public Places’ initiative.

Children and youth who want to get involved in the arts will find ample opportunity in Westcliffe. The Westcliffe Center for Performing Arts offers annual summer internships for college drama students. Teens can participate in Acting For Teens classes over summer. And the younger set (ages 7-12) can participate in their annual Creativity Camp.
Sangre Art Guild also features many opportunities for Westcliffe’s younger generation, including Preschool Art, Summer Art Camp (ages 7 to 12), and Teen Art Camp (ages 13 to 17.) They also offer a SAG tuition grant for arts-bound students, and help fund art-related education for Custer County schools.
And children certainly won’t want to miss SAG’s popular, annual 3-day event: Arts Hullabaloo.
