Evanston Made Kids

Evanston Made Kids (EMK) Evanston Made also supports the young artists in our community through Evanston Made Kids! Throughout the year, we host events with special attention to youth and family friendly activities.

Evanston Made Kids at Evanston Art Center

Our annual June EMK event is a family-friendly FREE month of making, creating, selling and celebrating Evanston's Young Creatives hosted by the Evanston Art Center!

Exhibits and workshops are held throughout June, and the month-long event culminates in a free family art extravaganza when the Evanston Art Center opens its art studios for demos and making, giving young people the chance to explore creative activities and take home their creations. From printmaking to fabric sculpture, kids get an opportunity to try out new art media and learn new skills. There is also a pop-up shop where young artists are invited to set up a “booth” and sell their handmade goods!
