When & Where

Four times a year we offer in depth instruction in a variety of mediums. Our session run in the winter, spring, summer, and fall for 6–8 weeks. Classes are held once a week at the Art Alliance Studio in Lemont, online via Zoom, or a mixture of both (unless it’s a plein air class!).

Who

Unless noted, all classes are beginner friendly!

Occasionally we have classes for just teens but most of our classes are structured for adults; however exceptions can be made for teens (contact us). 

Cost

Tuition varies per session but covers all classes in the series (6–8 classes); some classes may require a separate fee for materials.

Art Alliance members receive a 20% discount off class tuition. Membership may be purchased or renewed during registration. In the event a session is canceled or a student is unable to attend, tuition will be refunded in full or applied as a credit toward future classes.

Instructors

Class instructors are local artists (some formerly local) with extensive knowledge, an established portfolio, and love for teaching art. The quality of instruction and level of mentorship they give to all levels of artists (yes, even those taking a class for the first time!) is second to none. Many of our instructors have been teaching at the Art Alliance for several years and have a faithful following of students who are just as eager to welcome students of all levels.
