About Our Monthly Open Programs

On the third Monday of every month from September through April, (except December), the DuPage Art League hosts FREE programs, which are open to the public. Artists and experts connected with the arts do demonstrations, give talks, and share their secrets. These are fun, relaxed, and casual opportunities to mingle with fellow artists and learn something new. The program runs from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and includes refreshments.


Programs are held at the DPAL Annex across the street at 225 W. Front Street

Patricia Larkin Green - Sumi Ink

A turning point for Patricia was learning to paint Sumi-e, (East Asian ink wash painting), where her goal is to capture the soul of the subject. When she paints a flower she is freed from reproduction and inspired to convey its movement and fragrance. Less is more. Come and be inspired by Patricia's technique, in which every brush-stroke is full-charged with meaning, with useless detail eliminated!
