Art on the Village Square

Mother Nature isn’t the only artist creating beautiful things this Spring. You can learn how to create colorful works of art from the Encore Mt. Morris art classes, offered through Highland Community College, and held at the Old Sandstone Art Gallery on our Village square. There are still a few spaces left in The Art of Drawing with Colored Pencils, April 11 and 12, and Introduction to Watercolor, April 13. Register now to learn basic techniques and tips, nurture your creativity, and create a piece of art.

The first fine art show of the season opens June 7 in the Old Sandstone Art Gallery. Plan now to see the best works by local student artists. That’s also the season opener for the Mt. Morris Jamboree Friday night concerts.

Make Mt. Morris your cultural arts destination in northwest Illinois. Discover featured events and more on our Community Calendar.
