The Evanston Art Center offers extensive and innovative instruction in broad areas of artistic endeavor through classes, exhibitions, interactive arts activities, and community outreach initiatives.
The Evanston Art Center’s Education Program is proud to be apart of a yearlong series of Chicago street art exhibitions/actions instigated by the National Museum of Mexican Art. We look forward to hosting a 3-day educational program around street art called Street Arts as Public Pedagogy: Learning From the Margins. The goal of these events is to highlight artistic cultural efforts by those working in the street art realms of hip-hop culture and the visual arts so that we may grow visibility and awareness of these practices for audiences who may or may not have direct contact with them. We also want to shift how our communities view graffiti, youth, hip-hop, education, and art.
