Keeping you updated –

In 2020, our in-person learning program
was significantly impacted by the COVID crisis.

We are re-imagining how and where to deliver our sought after classes this year (in 2023)
– to re-engage and serve the community we hold so dear.
Please stay tuned!

Continuing programming Summer and Fall 2023!
Now adding Glass on Glass Mosaics class to the the roster of fun 4-week classes held on Thursday evenings at the Moose in Downers Grove.
With several successful sessions of our Stained Glass and Watercolor classes (which started in April 2023), we are proud to be continuing to expand our offering and serve more students with in-person learning in the arts!

New for spring 2023:
Hosted at the local Moose Lodge – Gallery’s Choice brings back in-person learning to the Downers Grove community through a series of weekly classes and Art Experience Workshops.
