It’s a rare place that can feed your curiosity, nurture your creativity and put you at ease. Happily, Elizabeth Rose’s Wear Art Studio achieves it all. Warm colors, natural lighting, antique embellishments and vintage oddities—like the retro salon hair-dryer in the corner—fill the space.
The studio has even hosted 26 kid participants in a Graffiti Art class, and all their accompanying spray paint. Hard to imagine from the elegant photo above, isn’t it? But therein lies the charm of the Wilmette establishment. At once large enough to be accommodating and small enough to be cozy and intimate, this space can be whatever you need it to be.
And that’s exactly what Rose intended to create.
A mother of two children, ages 12 and 14, Rose previously worked in marketing and fashion design. As her career in fashion grew, so too did her distaste for the changing rules of business. Seeking success on a smaller-scale and a desire to retain a “balanced” lifestyle, Rose left her career with the aim of creating a place that would address needs and wants of the area—to accommodate what Rose calls, “the flow of community.”
Wear Art Studio hosts an eclectic mix of classes, lectures, events and meetings. Past happenings have included knitting classes, yoga classes, Go Green Wilmette events, self-help workshops and trunk shows (some featuring Rose’s own designs).
The studio also can be leased for private events. Hosting a dinner party, no time to clean? Need a new book club meeting place? Wear Art may just be the perfect solution. With Wear Art around, what excuses do you have not to better yourself? Learn something new!
