Join USk-Chicago in Adding to Chicago's Art Story!


To add to the great announcement about our June 7-8, 2014, seminar location here’s a little color commentary about the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts. It's a not-for-profit art club and academy founded in 1895. It’s been located in an 1870’s circa mansion in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood since 1921. Many well known artists have been associated with Palette and Chisel including Fred Larson, Charles Russell, William Merritt Chase, Alphonse Mucha, Walter Ufer, and Richard Schmid, to name a few.
Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts offers non-instructed open studios with live models as well as classes and workshops for all levels of experience in many aspects of realistic art. Today, as well as throughout it’s long history, it is a respected institution for representational art in Chicago.


Stay tuned here and to FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for further updates! We hope you'll join us in adding to the Chicago art story!

This looks like quite a building and now knowing some of its history makes it that much more interesting. Thanks for sharing!
