Evanston Art Center is a non-profit (501(c)3) visual arts organization in Evanston, IL. The Evanston Art Center specializes in art education, scholarship programs, community events, public programs, outreach and exhibitions. All exhibitions are free and open to the public.
For more than eighty years the Evanston Art Center has been a major force in bringing together people, art and ideas. One of the oldest and largest visual art centers in Illinois, the Evanston Art Center's mission is to make the visual arts an integral and accessible part of the lives of the diverse audiences in the surrounding communities.
The Art Center fulfills this mission through an extensive offering of visual arts classes, public lectures, changing exhibitions, youth outreach activities, and publications, all of which are designed to engage and enrich the individual and the community.
The Art Center was established in 1929 by a group of civic and cultural leaders from the Evanston community. Alice C. Riley was the guiding light of this group of culturally minded citizens. Under her guidance, the Art Center was established and it thrived. Ms. Riley felt the true worth of a community could not be measured by economic success alone, but also had to take into consideration a rich cultural life.
EAC specializes in education, exhibitions, events, public programs, and community partnerships that involve youth, teens, and adults.
The Instructer was very helpful I am glad I took the class
Duffy was very informative, and patient. He was able to answer all my questions and more. Highly recommend this class to any artist trying to learn another way to display there art!
While, the instructor was very sweet and offered to help with any projects we the students wanted to create, there was 0 structure to the class. Most of the other students just did there own thing because they've taken classes there before and were basically just using the class to use the facilities. I was hoping for a much more structured environment where every session we had an assignment which taught us how to use different equipment and techniques. Potentially this would create at least a handful of different pieces showcasing different machines and styles. This was sadly not the case. Again, she was a very nice person-very approachable and was willing to work with you on whatever project you chose to do but having no experience I did not know what projects I could of potentially undertaken.

Good pace. Easy to understand.
I truly enjoyed 6 wks learning more & increase my ability. I am hoping to taping into more in drawing . I to thank my grandma for giving me the opportunity & the price was right to. Thank you Mario Townsend Jr
I just didn't enjoy this class. The teacher was fine but I didn't like the approach. I didn't go to the last 2 classes.
Good teacher and interesting classes covering paints and painting. Fun! And
I really liked the instructor and he was patient with my concerns. However, I took the course expecting some basic instruction on facial construction , and skin tone color mixing suggestions, but there was little. He was more inclined to make suggestions after a student did either a basic paint or drawing. For me, I did not have the skill to do the basics well, so I stopped attending at the class midpoint. I only gave it 2 stars because the course description should have clarified as to what the course contents would and would NOT include.
Could have been a shorter class. Most techniques were covered by the 4th class.
As a complete beginner, this was an excellent course. Although there were others in the class with far more experience than I, everyone was supportive and provided excellent feedback of previous work. Then there was time to learn and practice new concepts. As we got to watercolor and began practicing those techniques, the time flew by as I worked. I highly recommend this course and Sarah as an instructor. Thank you, Sarah!
