Hello Art Studio


About Hello Art Studio

Hello Art Studio is a multimedia art lessons studio serving children ages 7-14 in the Mount Prospect and Arlington Heights area. Hello Studio started as Christine Thornton’s Art Studio, based in my Mount Prospect home. I started teaching lessons here in 2005. I was a former elementary school art teacher staying home with our two lovely children when my husband and I converted the dining room into an art studio. Around that time, I also started teaching art programs at libraries all over Chicagoland. Over the years, attendance at my little home studio has grown. I’ve had more and more students until finally this year…

We have officially outgrown my house!

I’m excited to announce that we are launching a store front art school in Arlington Heights called Hello Art Studio. Starting in September 2019, I’ll teach multimedia art classes for kids at our new location, and also continue teaching drawing and painting classes at Chicagoland libraries. I am so grateful to the families and librarians I’ve worked with over the years. Thank you for your support, for making art a priority, and fostering joy and creativity in the process.

Come join us! We’d love to see you.
