Art Studio and Classes

Over 700 low-income adults and children received free art classes last year.

Art Program


People's Resource Center (PRC) offers free classes in the arts for DuPage County residents. Classes include watercolor painting, pottery, creative writing, photography, and mixed media. Classes are taught by local artists. 

Special class sessions are offered for women, families and kids. Kids' Art classes are offered in partnership with local schools and after-school programs around DuPage County.

PRC also organizes exhibitions and art sales across DuPage County to provide opportunities for PRC artists to promote their work.

PRC's art classes offer you the opportunity to express yourself, meet new people and have fun creating art.


All DuPage residents are welcome.  Students must register as PRC clients when registering for a class. Learn about Becoming a Client.
