Update: March 31, 2020
Dear Evanston Art Center Friends,
I hope that you are able to stay safe, and well, and connected to families and friends. In compliance with the CDC and our Illinois Public Health and Government authorities, the Art Center will remain closed until April 30, 2020. Our COVID-19 Task Force is meeting often and we are taking all recommendations from the government seriously, and your health and safety are our first priority. We miss seeing all of you and the incredible work that you create at the Art Center.
We are excited to announce that we are putting the final touches on our Spring session ONLINE offerings. We have reached out to our very talented faculty to create new online courses for all of you. We will keep you apprised of all the new offerings as soon as possible.
We are optimistic that we can reopen on May 1st and have 5 weeks of our Spring Term. This will create changes for many of you. In the case of refunds for the term, we will be able to send them, when we reopen. For now, we ask your patience as we all go through this unprecedented and difficult time together.
On a positive note, please check out our online student gallery and send us your images. We have a link to Art projects for Kid’s here, and we are continuing to update our Facebook, Instagram and Blog pages.
We are so grateful for your ongoing support now and at all times.
President & CEO

Updated pricing and dates will be posted online by Thursday, March 19. Spring students already registered will be contacted by email about refund and credit options.
COMMITTED TO YOUR HEALTH
During this closure we remain committed to your health. Staff will be working remotely. We will undergo a deep cleaning of all our studios and spaces.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT
We appreciate your continued patience and support. In times of uncertainty, we need art more than ever! I encourage you to continue your creative practice, if possible, at home, and stay connected virtually to your artist classmates and colleagues. Stay connected with the EAC on Facebook and Instagram in the meantime.
