About The Program: Our art classes are for all ages and are designed to encourage creativity and self-expression. We strive for a class atmosphere that is friendly, fun, and educational, and our art instructors are professional educators with a passion for teaching. The art studios are furnished with kilns, potters wheels, art tables, easels and a variety of fine arts programming. Our mission is to advocate artistic excellence through creativity and self-expression.

Let’s Get Messy!

Students will be working with all types of art materials, including paint, crayons, fabric markers, clay and more. We tend to get a bit messy in the art room, so please dress appropriately. The park district is not responsible for damaged clothing or property. Lobbies are available for parent seating.
