Cyn O’Brien will lead a hands-on watercolor lesson of creating an autumn themed still-life. Cyn has worked in many subject areas and enjoys painting people and pets. Her fascination in faces began as a makeup artist in the cosmetics industry. Her later career was teaching art in an after school program, private art lessons, hosting art painting parties and teaching a variety of workshops in drawing and painting. She also enjoys traveling to many areas of the world which inspires her passion for art and feeds the creative soul.
We hope you can attend this program which is free and open to the public! The Lemont Artists Guild Meetings are open to all, you do not have to be a Lemont Artists Guild member to attend.

There is additional parking around the building including South across 9th St. at the Illinois State Museum Norton Building (if you are okay to walk north across to the Gaylord Building).

Artists of all kinds are welcome to join our monthly meetup group! Meet other local artists (including some from the Lemont Artists Guild), discuss what you’re working on, and spend time creating alongside others. Bring your current project or art supplies to find inspiration & start a new one! New folks – and all art mediums – welcome!
While this is not an instructional class, the gathering of artists can help inspire you and give you feedback or ideas on your own artwork. Or, if you haven't been able to create but want to start, join us and see what others are making. Seeing others create can be just what you need to get your own project started!
No registration required; just show up!

This past spring LAG was invited to be at Lemont Library in their display case. The theme showcased photographs of Lemont in
celebration of the Village of Lemont's 150th Anniversary!
The case had photographs of Lemont by Matt Kosic, Gene Mark, and William Uznanski (William’s submitted by Nancy Uznanski).
While the case is not on display anymore, view a fun video of the pictures here at:
