The Grayslake Arts Alliance is comprised of local area artists, musicians, writers, business owners, and residents who appreciate the arts! We welcome you to attend our shows, and join us at our general meetings.
We welcome members to join our committees as we plan and work towards our goal of a Fine Arts Center for the Village of Grayslake, and our mission of promoting the arts through education, participation, and development.
The Events Committee meets at least once per month. The Events Committee works to establish member show locations and dates as well as all of the nuts and bolts planning that goes into accomplishing a successful art event. Our events include Member Shows, Farmer's Market, Silent Auction and other opportunities as they present themselves.
The Communications Committee develops and manages our social media platforms, produces press releases, posters, flyers, and other advertising avenues. Volunteers are always welcome for distributing posters and flyers throughout town for upcoming events. The Communications Committee meets the first Tuesday of the month.

The Education Committee has two distinct components - one for adults and one for children called "Outside the Lines."
The Finance Committee develops our budget, works with input from the executive committee/board/trustees, tracks expenses, reports to leadership on the progress attained towards our financial goals, reviews accounts with our accountant on a regular basis.
