At this time, only emergency food and social services are being provided onsite. Art, computer and literacy classes have transitioned to virtual classes. Please check back for updated information, which will post as it becomes available.
Art helps us to express ourselves in both times of joy and times of challenge.
People’s Resource Center offers much-needed opportunities for creative expression through its free art programs for clients, including special sessions dedicated to families and women. PRC also sponsors art exhibitions that give participants the chance to see their work on display in the community.
Local artists teach painting, ceramics, collage, and other classes at PRC locations in both Wheaton and Westmont. Paints, brushes, easels and other art supplies are provided.
In addition to having fun, adults and children who participate grow their imagination and creativity – all important skills in school, work and life. Participation also builds self-esteem in both children and adults. Many clients have found it a valuable way to validate their personal story and share it with others.

What to expect
Classes are taught at our two locations or virtually, by local artists. We'll provide paints, brushes, easels, and other art supplies for the lesson. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that you wouldn't mind getting dirty (especially for painting classes). Click here for more information: September schedule.
Your art can be a part of our Community Resilience Project - an online exhibition dedicated to sharing our experiences about living through the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here for details on how to submit your work.
PRC is happy to share our Youth Art Project - The Art of Healthy Eating, a collection of art work which celebrates National Nutrition Month and National Youth Art Month- both relevant themes in the work of People’s Resource Center.
We are excited to be partnering with College of DuPage this year to celebrate these important topics through an amazing display of artwork made by young artists in our community. We hope you enjoy it. And, a big THANK YOU to our contributors!
