Free virtual art programs for seniors coming up on May 19 & 22

Art classes are being offered online by Marie Strauch. There is a small fee for each class of just $8. Classes may be paid for individually, or if you think you'd like to join in on several classes, you may do that at once (for example 5 classes would be $40). Register by emailing strauchartschool [at]

Payment options are through QuickPay (Zelle) online bank transfer using strauchartschool [at] or mailing a check made out to Strauch Art School to 320 N. Myrtle Ave., Elmhurst, IL 60126.

During each class, there will be time for you to view an art demo, work on your art piece, ask questions, get feedback, and share what you may have been working on. All in the comfort of your home!

Here’s the schedule for the next week. Please have your supplies ready and log on to your computer, tablet, or phone a few minutes before the meeting time so that we can enter the meeting and all try to start as soon as possible. If you are unable to start at our start time, no worries. Just join in when you are able. I won’t text reminders, so please put these times in your calendar. I hope to see you for one or both sessions!
