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.





Welcome...The art community we have fostered here for over 94 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 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.  

​We welcome you to our studios and galleries anytime – we’d love to see you! We invite you to explore our adult art classes and art classes for children.
