Water Street Studios is a nonprofit art center located in Batavia, Illinois.

Our mission is to help make the arts more accessible to the Fox Valley region and beyond. Our vision is to be a cultural hub in the Midwest.  We provide our ever-growing community with art classes, artist studios, community events, gallery exhibitions, free after-school art programs, outreach, private events in a historic venue, and more.


Water Street Studios thrives because of you!

We are partnering with local arts organizations, supporters, and stakeholders to raise $20,737: $4,068 for art supplies, $10,669 for art outreach instructors, and $6,000 for classroom space.

Can we count on you to make Water Street Studios a priority on Giving Tuesday this year?
