OUR MISSION:
Our Vision is to Encourage the Creation and Appreciation of Visual Art in the Elgin and Fox Valley Area.

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT...
Art for All was established in 1996 to encourage and promote local artists. In 1998 we became a 501C.3 non-profit organization to bring artists and the public together. We are a community-minded art group with a diversity of talent from all walks of life. Art is for everyone!

Art for All has two-dimensional and three-dimensional artists working in almost every medium. In our Art Collection of you will see Watercolors, Oils, Pastels, Charcoal, Fiber, Glass, Mosaics, Metal, Jewelry, Pen and Ink, Mixed Media, Photography and much more.
VENUES
Art for All members have an opportunity to exhibit their art, with no commission fees, at a variety of local locations.

Currently we have rotating shows at Elgin City Hall, The Centre of Elgin, and The Hemmens.

Art for All members also have the opportunity to show works at the annual Winter Show in the main lobby of the Gail Borden Library. We continually look to find new spaces for our artists to show their work.

MEETINGS
We invite artists and non-artists to join us at our monthly meetings. Our General Meeting is held the second Tuesday of each month at the Epworth United Methodist Church located at 7W040 W Highland Ave, Elgin, IL, 60123. We begin with a social half hour for networking, at 7:00 pm and our speaker or program starts at 7:30pm. Meetings rotate between demonstrations, guest speakers, art lectures, videos, and critique sessions.

Our Board Meeting is held the first Wednesday of each month. The Board meets at Sandy Kaptain's home located at 749 Scott, Elgin, IL 60123. Meetings begin at 7:00pm.

Membership information and forms may be received at one of our meetings or by emailing us at info@artforall-elgin.com.

SCHOLARSHIPS
Art for All makes Academic Scholarships available to art students in the Fox Valley area. Every year we try to provide two $1000.00 scholarships.
The application will be available to download from our website in the fall.

We welcome new members...artists and non-artists alike.

Artists are creative and individualistic by nature, but by working in a group we can get more done than doing it alone. Come help us help you.

All for One and One for All = Art for All.
