ST. CHARLES – With the completion of a new entrance at 37W570 Bolcum Road last June, Fine Line Creative Center became easier to find and more a part of the St. Charles landscape.

The new entrance included an expanded parking lot, new lighting and a new forged steel sign created by Fine Line instructor and artist Dan Caldwell.

In recognition of the new entryway, Fine Line recently received the Civic Image Award from the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce.

Lynn Caldwell, director of Fine Line, accepted the award, which was presented by Tom Hansen, chairman of the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce.

“This project has been in the works since 2009,” said Caldwell in a news release. “For the first time in our history, Fine Line has an address, a sign and a driveway which all coincide.”

Fine Line has been at its current location since 1986, but had to restrict some of its offerings over the years due to zoning restrictions and limited parking availability.

Now, with easier access, Fine Line can offer weekend workshops as well as host more students on campus, states the release.

Fine Line Creative Arts Center is a nonprofit art school offering adult classes and workshops in a range of fine arts. Two galleries are included on the Fine Line campus, featuring local to international artists.
