Landscapes/ Cityscapes

The inaugural Landscapes/Cityscapes Show is a smashing success with over 110 beautiful pieces! The artists have captured scenes from their lives that are sure to captivate your imagination - their mediums range from oils to photography to encaustic.


Our offices and studios remain closed due to Covid 19. We look forward to seeing you soon ... thank you for your support during this time!Type your paragraph here.

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 95 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.
