Come develop your artistic skills and creativity in the way that works best for you!

Are you looking to develop specific skills or a new technique? Individualized art classes allow for a more personalized approach to learning. Cheryl will tailor instruction to your chosen medium, skill level, interests, and learning style. You may choose to work from photos, a still life, or your imagination. Students must bring their own supplies.

Drawing and painting benefit your mind and spirit. Art is an incredibly therapeutic activity, it is relaxing, and benefits fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, problem-solving and creative thinking skills. Creative activities like painting are great mood boosters and can even make you more optimistic. Some research suggests art can slow cognitive decline.

Looking for local art classes? Gorton offers a variety of art classes for all ages throughout the year. Visit our classes page or subscribe to our newsletter for information on our art classes.

Cheryl Steiger is a Chicago area artist and teacher. Cheryl grew up in Riverwoods, IL. She studied fine and commercial art at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. In 1979, she became a freelance illustrator, also working on commissioned pieces and producing audio-visual shows, cartooning and fashion illustration. Cheryl has been teaching art for the past 30 years at many Chicago institutions, including The Art Center of Highland Park, The Evanston Art Center and Edgebrook Chicago Public School. She shows her fine art locally and around the world. In the summer of 2007, Cheryl participated in Chicago’s ecologically-themed Public Art Project, Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet. Her small globe was on exhibit at The United Nations, NY and The Kennedy Center, and was purchased by the “Clinton Initiative”. The large globe is still being exhibited internationally. 

 “Creating art is my passion. Bringing my internal vision to the canvas to be shared is my greatest pleasure.”
