NEW DRAWING CLASSES START IN FEBRUARY 2021!

Limited capacity to 5 students.
To sign up, call 708-691-9084.

*********************************

(4 week - 8 sessions)

Anyone can learn to draw!
In this 8 evening beginner adult class, you will learn the basics - from materials you need to get started, to learning how to loosen up with simple shapes and gestures, and finally to completing your first finished drawing of still life.

This class is designed to be relaxing, fun, and give you everything you need to get started on a lifetime of sketching. Ages 15+

From your instructor Visata Rupeika:

My classes are unique in that they teach fundamental skills and help students develop a genuine understanding of their medium. I combine instruction and individualized guidance with plenty of hands-on student guidance in class. You will acquire the skills through traditional instruction and practice.

My curriculum is grounded in my own classical training as an artist at Vilnius Academy of Arts (previously State Art Institute of Lithuania).

These are NOT “paint-by-numbers” classes. You will learn skills to create great art.

Ever since the early days of jazz standards, JAZZY Christmas has formed a special part of the festive season.

For example, Irving Berlin is one of the best-loved American songwriters of the 20th Century, and a number of his songs (including ‘How Deep is the Ocean’, ‘Blue Skies’ and ‘Cheek to Cheek’) are favorite vehicles for jazz improvisers.

Sammy Cahn wrote lyrics for a number of jazz tunes that were made famous by Frank Sinatra, including “Come Fly With Me” and “I Should Care”. Meanwhile, Jule Styne wrote the music for popular standards such as “It’s You or No One”, “Make Someone Happy” and “Just In Time”.

Expressive ART Center, ART Gallery invites you to Celebrate the Christmas of 2020 with live JAZZ Band.

LIMITED CAPACITY!

Book your table, dress festive, and come to enjoy Jazzy Christmas with us.
We still have 4 tables available.
Call to reserve yours, at 708-691-9084.

This is only the tip of the ice berg when it comes to learning photography.

****************

So most of you are probably sitting there right now saying, “But, I already have a camera and can take pretty good pictures “! That’s totally fine...

The truth of the matter is that we want to teach you to be an artist! Your camera is going to become an extension of YOU. It needs to flow, fit your style and become second nature to use. Because of this, you’re gonna’ need to understand a few things about where you want ultimately want to go with your photography.

The next class at Expressive Art Center is scheduled for the end of January 2021.

YOUR SANCTUARY - expressive ART Center

Express Yourself Through Yoga, Art, Dance, and Music

Unleashing your artistic side can open the mind to new and compelling ideas and engender discovery of passions and intellect. Thus, finding ways to be more creative, through art, dance, music, and expressive yoga, will enrich the soul and provide inspiration for future ventures.

​Explore with US!

Living life to its fullest is a common goal, and it can be possible if you let your guard down and be open to new adventures and growth. Sometimes people get locked into certain personas and thoughts, where the monotony of an average workweek hinders spontaneity, novelty, and the imagination. By shaking things up in creative and artistic ways, it paves the way for enlightenment and personal development.
