About Us

Founded in 1954, The Art League, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational nonprofit organization. The League is a multifaceted visual arts organization that meets its mission through its gallery, fine art school, art supply store, and arts-outreach programs.

Gallery

The Art League Gallery holds monthly juried exhibits and special exhibits including solo artists, student shows, and the Patrons’ Show. Exhibits are free and open to the public. All artists can become exhibiting artist members and submit work to our monthly exhibits, juried by noted fine art professionals from throughout the Washington area and beyond.

Classes

The Art League School is a non-accredited institution, open to all, that provides instruction to nearly 7,000 students annually. Courses are offered quarterly in virtually all of the fine arts, and a wide variety of crafts, with some of the most talented and well known artists and instructors in the country. Courses are offered for every skill level to ages five and up.

Store

The Art League Store, staffed by working artists, provides members and students with exceptional quality, low priced art supplies. As a convenience to our students, members, and supporters, supplies and materials requested by Art League instructors are sold here.

Outreach

The Art League’s outreach programming uses the visual arts as a catalyst to reach out to the underserved in our community with programs like IMPART, SOHO Old Town (a Space of Her Own), and the Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund.

Our Mission

By nurturing the artist, we enrich the community. The Art League develops the artist through education, exhibition, and a stimulating, supportive environment, while sharing the experience of the visual arts with the community.

A true asset to the community. You can see the latest works by many local artists, buy art, sell your art, take art lessons support the art community. You can attend the many social gatherings, many are free, spend the day visiting the studios of resident artists, visit the gift shop, stop by the mini restaurant and other venues I will leave for you to discover. A great way to spend the day. You can even bring your dog.
