We are pleased and excited to announce our move to a brand new location on Ogden Avenue.
THE BRIGANTINE GALLERY & ART ACADEMY 734 OGDEN AVE. DOWNERS GROVE, IL. 60515 Driving Directions
As many of you know by now, we have moved from the Main Street location of the Brigantine Gallery to open a larger Gallery and Art Academy in the same town but with much more room.
Our classes have grown and especially our professional workshops. We have had a waiting list for several of the last workshops and now can accommodate more people with no crowding.
While we will always represent the best artists we can find to grace our walls, our concentration will be on developing the academy within the gallery. From our very popular Paint & Play
nights, children and adult lessons, birthday parties and family nights to the all day professional workshops we will provide the best instruction we possibly can. Paint & Play classes
will have different teachers each week and afternoon classes to mix it up a bit, and we have had requests for classes for 'home schooled' kids and teens. Open painting will be available
at all times for a small membership fee. This will allow you to come and use our facilities and get the help from our teachers and each other. Watch for information regarding all our
Information on monthly workshops will be emailed before the beginning of each month.
If you would like to be added to a mailing list for sign ups please email me with your contact information. Upcoming workshops and pictures of previous workshops will be posted on the
under Joan of Art, and on Facebook under Brigantine Gallery
Drop in....shop with us, paint with us...learn with us.
We are also pleased to announce our new Art Academy.
The Brigantine Art Academy is an all encompassing group of programs and services designed to offer art instruction and support facilities to students of all levels. Some of these
- First time artists
- High school art students
- Serious student artists in advanced art education
- Established artists
- Senior Citizens
Our ever popular Paint & Play afternoon and evening classes offer children and adults a fun and entertaning introduction to the world of art and allow them to explore their artistic
abilities in the stimulating and inspiring environment of a real art gallery.
Our highly successful professional art workshops taught by established artists in our Joan of Art program provide more advanced and serious students as well as professional artists
with ways to enhance their artistic abilities, explore new avenues of expression and continue to grow in their various artistic diciplines.
We will also continue to offer private lessons and classes for individuals or small groups in the open gallery area or in our private instruction rooms.
Our new classes for 'home schooled' kids and teens will offer quality instruction at times which are more feasable for their fluctuating schedules.
Open painting will be available at all times for a small membership fee. This will allow you to come and use our facilities and get the help from our teachers as well as each other.
