Online and In-Person | 2646 N. Halsted, Chicago
Our signature classes introduce kids from ages 1-19 to artists and their works, from famous to contemporary, through hands-on artist-inspired art lessons. Using a mix of media, and seeing something different every week, our students enjoy a broad range of art exposure. During the uncertainty of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have moved mostly online but are still also offering some in-person art experiences. Our classes are constantly growing in variety as we take to the online platform to offer ARTists at Home Classes (a version of our Signature Classes), Drawing, Painting, Cartooning and even some new textile classes. Weather permitting, we have outdoor art experiences to share.
