Evanston Paints

Inspired by Herve Tullet’s “Art of Play,” Evanston Paints are  free, community art workshops that invite all ages to paint and create in a fun, playful environment. All art created in workshops will be collected, organized and exhibited at the Evanston Art Center in June 2024 in celebration of Evanston Made’s 10-year anniversary.

The project opens participants to the importance and enjoyment of making art, and engages artists of all ages and abilities to express their creativity. This community art project is FUN, FREE to attend and open to artists (everyone) of all abilities.
