Are you ready to submit your masterpieces to our 4th Annual Tustin Art League show? Submission dates are coming up, so get ready! Not a member? Not to worry, the show is open to everyone. Local amateur and professional artists always wow us with their "scenes of Tustin" and every year it just gets better! TAL is a Tustin Area Council for Fine Art (TACFA) program that has been meeting regularly since 2000. Its members actively participate in local events around town like the Tustin Street Fair, Tustin Tiller Days, TAL month at the Tustin Senior Center Gallery, art walks and the annual Promenade Home and Garden Tour.
