Project Art Skills Class

Are you an artist? Have you always wanted to be one? Then you need to join the Art at the Arc! This collaborative program between the Rockford Park District and the Arc of Winnebago, Boone, and Ogle County provides its artists with the proper supplies and facility to practice their creative skills. Artists will learn a new skill to try out each week as well as creating their very own art piece. Be sure to wear those clothes that you don't mind getting messy.

(Ages 18+)

Green Thumb Gardening

The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and its time to dig in! We’ll add our own personal touches to the Linda K. White Center by planting flowers and vegetables. After we’re done planting, we’ll help maintain our landscape designs and make some crafts for our gardens at home.

Project Art Open Studio

Open studio is an ideal program for artists who are looking for a creative environment to work independently on their own artwork. Staff artists will assist with developing artistic skills, content, and professionalism. Artists should have participated in our skills classes, or demonstrate the ability to work independently on their own artwork. Basic supplies are provided, and artists are encouraged to bring additional supplies of their liking. Artists will have the opportunity to sell their artwork; proceeds will be split between the artist and the program.
