Today's the day to start taking an art class! The Evanston Art Center offers visual art classes that are inviting and comfortable, with intimate class sizes and opportunities for one-on-one learning. Our teaching artists will treat you as an artist, while focusing on fundamental skills, medium techniques, conceptual foundations, and constructive feedback. If you're brand new to art, returning, or a practicing artist, there are classes for your skill level and interests.
Our classes are flexible when you enter the classroom. If you want to try something new, we work with you to achieve your goals! We do not guide artistic experiences and exploration through rigidity; instead, we facilitate opportunities for self-directed collaboration for you to achieve your artistic goals. Don't hesitate to contact us to learn more and discuss the class that would be a good fit for your needs and schedule.
