"Enriching Lives Through Visual Arts"

Kaleidoscope School of Fine Art, Inc. is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization situated in downtown Barrington. Founded in 1986, and redefined in 2014 as a non-for-profit, Kaleidoscope offers quality art instruction to Barrington and the surrounding communities. Classes are available throughout the year to students of all ages, preschool through seniors. Our warm and welcoming atmosphere fosters student growth in a variety of ways and embodies the message that "Art is for Everyone".

As our mission to reach out in our community unfolds, Kaleidoscope will partner with local organizations to bring art to everyone.  Art has the power to guide self-expression and build a sense of self.  It is our hope that through our new community Art-Reach programs, we are able to use our talents as artists and teachers to address larger needs in the community.
