Tours of all kinds come alive at the Fine Arts Center. Journey into art, history, writing, theatre, and more. Learn more about our touring programs for students and see what the Fine Arts Center has to offer.


Professional Development

Did you know that the the Fine Arts Center’s Bemis Art School offers certificates of completion for art classes. Often these hours qualify for professional development hours that must be maintained as a teacher.


Talented in Art Program

We offer Gifted and Talented in Art programs for School District 11, for grades 3-5. For over 25 years we have offered programs to teach high levels of art standards. Multiple week art classes in varied mediums culminate in an art show and reception for the students who participate.



Student Matinée Programs

Bring classes and groups to our student matinées for an enriching experience to last a lifetime. The variety of theatre experiences will leave your students wanting more!
