Unique benefit: When you join Trinity Arts Guild, you get “two meetings/demos for the price of one”. Let me explain that — there are actually two meetings with demos every month September through June. The original meeting is is on the first Monday evening of the month (the original schedule) and the second meeting is on the second Wednesday morning (“TAG in the Morning”) The second was created when the Mid-Cities group merged with TAG.
