Founded in 1898, Fleisher Art Memorial is one of the country’s oldest nonprofit community art schools. They are committed to advancing the vision of their founder, Samuel S. Fleisher, who believed that art is one of society’s greatest assets and equalizers. From the doorway of his Graphic Sketch Club, he “invited the world to come and learn art.” Every year, more than 20,000 people experience the transformative power of art by participating in their classes, tuition-free classes, workshops, exhibitions, and community-based programs. 

Our Mission

Fleisher’s mission is to make art accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience.

And while you're in the center of the park, take time to visit the
