The Center for the Arts is located at the Wilmette Park District.
The Art Department features classes from ages two through adult in mediums such as watercolor, acrylic, pencil, pastel and clay. Our facility offers two dedicated art rooms, a ceramics studio and two on site kilns. For our youth program we offer a seasonal art show and summer art camps.
The Dance Department offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, lyrical, contemporary and modern. Our classes begin at age two and range through adult technique. We feature a performance team, two annual recitals and a production of The Nutcracker.
The Music Department offers lessons in guitar, piano, violin and voice. Our Canzonetta program features a full string orchestra. Vocal, violin and piano instruction cumulate in an annual recital and our vocal instruction ties in with the musical theater program.
