Advanced Arts @ Gallery 37 provides high school juniors/seniors who show exceptional talent and interest in the arts rigorous instruction and career guidance in an inspiring setting, the Gallery 37 Center for the Arts. To supplement classroom learning, students also benefit from master classes, field trips, public art exhibitions, and a showcase of their visual, performing, and culinary arts. Representatives from top colleges actively recruit graduates of the program.
Each course is taught by a collaborative team consisting of a Chicago Public Schools teacher paired with a professional artist from our partner organizations. In the past five years, over 900 juniors/seniors from 40 schools have taken classes in Fine Arts, Culinary, Arts and Technology and Performance Arts.
This is a Chicago Public Schools program where students earn TWO honors credits toward graduation upon successful completion of a year of study and course objectives. Students may also earn Advanced Placement credits for classes in drawing and painting, sculpture, and photography.
As part of the students' school day, classes meet five days a week from 2:00-4:00 pm for the entire school year at Gallery 37 Center for the Arts, located at 66 East Randolph Street. Students receive daily bus passes for roundtrip transportation.
