About Us

Weekly art classes focus on drawing and painting classes incorporate classical traditions of the Renaissance masters with a modern sensibility. Working from observation, live models, still life set ups, and other artistic disciplines, artists from beginning to advanced levels have the opportunity to develop and refine their artistic skills.

 Artist Workshops are scheduled throughout the year and focus on further skill development, exploration, and expression.

Providing an environment where artists can practice, develop and further their own artistic growth is a high priority at Patris Studio and Gallery. Fun, creative events are scheduled throughout the year to give artists an opportunity to network, connect with other artists, and build community.

From emerging to nationally known artists, a
diverse range of level and skill are showcased in the Patris Studio and Gallery. A common theme throughout much of the artwork is the artist's pursuit of painting and drawing from life - whether figurative, still life, or en plein air.

The gallery also exhibits a selection of abstract and 3-D pieces.

Every month Patris Studio and Gallery participates in the Oak Park First Friday events and the city-wide 2nd Saturday Art Walk. Artists and art lovers from near and far visit the studio and gallery, meet the artists, and participate in or observe artists painting, drawing, or sculpting from a live model.
