Our generous donors at all levels help ensure that the Evanston Art Center (EAC) continues to foster the appreciation and expression of the arts among diverse audiences. Over 80 years of generous support has resulted in EAC becoming the largest nonprofit visual arts organization offering classes, exhibitions, outreach programming and scholarships in the State of Illinois.
However, in order to keep growing and engaging new audiences, EAC needs your ongoing support. Here are just a few of the initiatives we need funding for:
- an Art Van travelling to various neighborhoods providing pop-up art activities,
- a Design Department offering landscape/garden, graphic and interior design classes,
- professional Development opportunities and CPDU credit for teachers,
- IPad classes for adults and youth,
- a studio designed to meet the needs of our youngest artists, those ages 3 to 5.
Let's make these programs a reality! Please consider joining one of EAC's Donor Circle levels and rest assured that your investment will enhance the communities in which we all live and work.
