Kaleidoscope has been offering fine art classes to Barrington and surrounding communities since 1986. Kaleidoscope seeks to maintain quality instruction in an inspiring, encouraging, comfortable, yet structured envirionment. Class size is kept small in order to give students individual attention and the opportunity to learn at their own abililty and pace. Any age student (age 4 and older) at any skill level is welcome. Classes are usually an hour to an hour and a half and meet once a week for 6 week sessions that range in price from $98-$202 per 6 week session, all materials included. Summertime offers week long art camp options. View the current schedule online.
These pink poodles are from a 4 year old girl's birthday party where she and her friends learned together how to draw and paint "pink poodles and rainbows," subject matter that the birthday girl chose herself! If you have a group and you'd like a one-time art lesson, consider planning an art party at Kaleidoscope. You can choose your own theme or rely on instructor recommendations. Parties are subject to classroom and instructor availability and are often held on the weekends. Call for a party brochure: (847)381-4840. Price range $125-$220.
Kaleidoscope offers Private lessons for students who want more individual attention or for whom the regularly scheduled classes aren't convenient. Private lesson rates are $42 per person per hour for drawing and painting instruction and $50 per person per hour for clay sculpture instruction. Materials are included. Semi-private lesson rates for 3 or more students are $27.50 per person per hour for drawing and painting and $33 per person per hour for clay sculpture. Twenty percent is paid to Kaleidoscope for use of the building and supplies. Email me if you'd like to schedule a time for private lessons.
