The Oak Park Area Arts Council has launched a comprehensive online arts directory that lists available classes, camps, lessons and events in Oak Park and River Forest. The goal, officials say, is to engage youth in the arts through easily accessible opportunities. The project was funded by a grant from the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation’s Women Leaders in Philanthropy. View the directory at www.artopedia.org.
Oak Park offers a variety of services that can be accessed online from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Some of the services are managed directly by the Village, while others are third-party vendors authorized by the Village to conduct transactions.
