About the Event
We host an Open Studio on the first Saturday of the month 1pm-3pm! Our Open Studio days are created to make art materials and a creative makers space available to all in our community. Join us for our First Saturday's Open Studio where you can check out our community art space and gallery and make some art! All ages welcome!
Guest Artist Kristina, one of the Visibility Artists from Search, Inc, will share how to create a push and pull painting with layers of pattern drawing. This technique blends layers of transparent paint with vivid color patterns to create a bright, colorful, and whimsical piece of art. We are looking forward to painting and drawing with you! Visibility Arts provides a space for professional and emerging adult visual artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities to explore, learn, create and show their artwork.
This program will be held every first Saturday of the month as part of Evanston Made's "First Saturdays" city-wide initiative designed to bring attention to artists and art events in the community. Artists and galleries throughout Evanston host exhibition openings, studio visits, artist talks, workshops and classes on the first Saturday of each month in order to increase arts engagement in Evanston.
Our First Saturdays Open Studio is for all ages. Suggested donation is $10 to help cover cost of materials and to support us in our mission to make this program available to all participants. To make a donation click here.
