Studio art classes at Elmhurst Art Museum promote lifelong artistic exploration. With experienced teaching artists and a versatile studio space, our Education Center hosts a wide variety of classes throughout year. There is truly something for everyone with instructional classes open to participants as young as 2 years old and beyond.

Most studio art classes meet once a week for six weeks. Summer Classes start June 12th. Less kids classes will be offered in the summer due to the Summer Camp schedule. See all classes offered.

Following the guidelines provided by the CDC and local public health professionals, we have updated policies for limited sized classes. Below are a few of the ways in which we are adapting to the situation:

  • Communication is key. Staff will send out detailed updates outlining best practices prior to the start of each session
  • Class attendees will only use Education Center entrance and facility
  • Thorough disinfecting between a reduced number of classes in the Education Center
  • Drop-off/pick-up procedures may change for large sessions such as Spring & Summer Camps.
  • While not mandated, we understand some individuals will choose to continue wearing masks and ask everyone to respect these decisions.
  • Sanitizing stations are installed throughout the studios.
  • To reduce the amount of shared supplies, we are requesting that each student bring their own utensils when applicable. Please see the class description for a more detailed list of recommended supplies as each class may be different.
