Lake County Art Galleries
A collection of art is waiting for you...

Peter Patterson Glass Shop offers the one of a kind experience of making your own glass artwork! Either see a demonstration of how these creative glass pieces are made or take a class and make an exquisite work of art for your home, that comes with a great story of your own hands on experience.

Try it yourself! Artist at Heart on MainStreet Libertyville invites you to get in on the artistic action! They host classes for kids, teens and adults where you can learn how to create mosaics, paint ceramics or be inspired by original art works in their gallery. Plan a ladies night out, a bridal shower, or a birthday party for kids or adults. And you won’t want to miss their BYOB adult painting nights! Insider Tip: their musical paintings are a lot of fun and for any skill level.

Waukegan MainStreet is a collection of boutiques and shops for the art lover inside of everyone! Be inspired by their efforts to preserve historic Downtown Waukegan. Join with other art enthusiasts for a monthly ArtWauk and explore new art spaces like the Dandelion Gallery, Urban Edge, Water Street Gallery, Tufo Gallery and finish up your day with some delicious food and drinks at the Green Town Tavern.
