Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for over 99 years is alive and well! It is a community full of rich experiences, shared passions, creative conversations and special connections through the offering of art classes, exhibits, workshops, lectures and special arts events in Winnetka. Our community happens when we talk to each other at an exhibit; it happens when we get messy in a class; it happens when we sit around a table together to work on projects; it happens when we meet new friends at League events. Art endures - and so has the League! We invite you to explore our adult art classes and art classes for children.
We love our students & artists, so feel free to visit during office hours!
