Memberships are the key to our continued operation and success. Your Membership supports art exhibits, classes, scholarships, community outreach programs and more! Membership is required to enroll in Adult Classes.
The North Shore Art League is a 501c3 organization.
The NSAL has continuously served an important role as contributor to the cultural fabric of our community. As an arts organization, we provide a unique environment for experimentation, challenge, and fulfillment to artists of all ages and levels of experience. Our fine faculty, outstanding art studio, and printmaking facilities have earned us a reputation as a revered center for learning. We can provide a world enriched by the arts, but only your financial support can ensure our continuation for generations to come!
Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for over 97 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 doesn’t always happen on a screen, it 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. At this time we cannot do many of those things - but we will be here for you when it is safe to do so! Art endures - and so will the League!
We invite you to explore our adult art classes and art classes for children.
