DuPage Art League's Yuletide Treasures is open for the holidays
Looking for a unique gift for that special someone? Look no further. The DuPage Art League's Yuletide Treasures is now open for the holidays!
The annual holiday market is one of Wheaton's holiday highlights.
More than 30 local artists have created one-of-a-kind holiday gift items, including:
• Jewelry -- handmade ear rings, necklaces, bracelets and more;
• Cards -- crafted and designed by local artists;
• Hats and gloves -- hand woven with original patterns and comfy fabrics;
• Doll clothes -- for your collection;
• Ornaments -- all shapes, sizes, and themes to fill out your tree;
• Candles -- for those romantic stay-at-home dinners;
• Paintings -- to brighten up your walls and holidays.
Hundreds of unique and very affordable gifts are available. Local artists will continue to add items through the holidays so even last-minute shoppers will find the perfect gift.
DuPage Art League's hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday through Thanksgiving and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday after Thanksgiving. Each purchase helps to support your local artist community.
The Art League has also created special holiday display windows.
Take a picture in Santa's sleigh to post on Instagram or include on your holiday card.
Kids also will love the Art League's "I Spy Window" that features riddles, a search for hidden holiday treasures, and a "Guess How Many" in the jar contest.
The windows were painted by DuPage Art League artists and the visual displays are items borrowed from members of the Art League. DuPage Art League is located in the heart of downtown Wheaton at 218 W. Front St. near outdoor dining, coffee shops, shopping and much more.
It's the perfect way to kick off the "The most wonderful time of the year."
DuPage Art League also has many in person art classes and Zoom classes available.
Classes are listed on the DuPage Art League website at dupageartleague.org and you can call (630) 653-7090 to register. COVID-19 safety protocols are strictly followed.
They have something for everyone -- adults, teens, kids.
