Art Circle

A hangout for artistic collaboration.

Join fellow AnimeChicago members about art and anime, share your most recent works, and improve your skills together.


All skill levels welcome! We’re mostly beginners improving our craft.


No materials needed! We always have some basic art supplies on hand, so show up as you are.


Sharing and collaboration is encouraged.

General Info

  • Meets one Saturday a month from 2:00 to 4:00.
  • Art Circle meetings are usually held at bars, but will occasionally have a meeting at a local library branch.

The Art Circle Format

  • Art Circle doesn’t have a formal structure, but we will sometimes have a brief discussion about an art technique.
  • Art Circle will sometimes have a brief drawing game, to get artists into the creative mood.


  • One goal for Art Circle is to feature works from our local artists on the AnimeChicago website, with the ultimate goal of publishing a small anthology showcasing the best works we’ve come up with.
