We are new to this area. My daughter is five years old.

We are thinking send her to painting/art class.

Is there any good classes near Naperville?

Thanks a Lot

I know Chicago is far from Naperville, but I know Lillstreet Art Center has some great children's programs. I was really impressed with not only the skill the kids have, but also with how much they let them do in their programs. (I have taken two classes there in the metals department and they teach really young kids how to solder, which surprised me.)

Anyway, even though that isn't an ideal location for you, the department director there may have some contacts in the suburbs. Asking them could be worth a shot... Art Classes for Adults & Kids in Chicago | Lillstreet Art Center

Lillstreet is wonderful. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Yeah, me too. I find myself recommending it almost daily; whenever someone compliments me on a piece of jewelry I am wearing I find myself telling them that I learned the techniques used to make it at Lillstreet. Even if I move to the suburbs, I will still take classes there when I can.

My wife just finished a printing class there. She loved it!

And don't move to the suburbs.
