ArtWorks Studio is moving to Wednesdays starting May 31. The weekly drop-in art studio is from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Pick Music Suite on the 8th floor of Harold Washington Library Center.

Stop by to make art and crafts with graduate students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's art therapy department. All supplies are provided. Create with a medium of your choice or participate in the community weaving.

The studio is open to all ages. Children 13 and under are invited to participate with an adult partner.

ArtWorks Studio is part of the Makers on 8 programming on the 8th floor of Harold Washington Library Center.

The mission of ArtWorks is to cultivate inclusive communities through the arts and cultural exchange. The aim is to foster the development of understanding and compassion between people, despite social and cultural differences. ArtWorks programs are based on the beliefs that the arts belong to everyone, and that collective art-making practices promote respect for difference and inspire positive social change.
