Skokie Art Guild

SAGThe Skokie Art Guild offers annual memberships for individuals, families, and students enrolled in an art degree program. Members can participate in the Fall Members' exhibit at the Skokie Public Library and the Spring show at the Emily Oaks Nature Center. Members receive a 10% discount on art classes at the Devonshire Cultural Center and at local art supply stores. For more information about the Skokie Art Guild and its programs, contact Rick Flintz.

Art Partners

Outside cultural arts groups may conduct classes or events in our space. We offer a limited number of multi-purpose areas, theater, dance and art studios. Outside groups would be required to present in an area of the arts that would complement and not conflict with the current Devonshire curriculum. Class registration or tickets would run through the Skokie Park District. The park district and the group would each receive a percentage of registration or ticket funds.

For more information, please call Robin Horwitz at (847) 929-7420 or email rhhorwitz@skokieparks.org.
