Welcome to Open Studio Project!

We are all equally artists - creativity has a place in everyone's life, including yours.

For more than 25 years, Open Studio Project has provided dynamic, award-winning arts programming in a welcoming atmosphere of supportive non-interference - free of all comment and critique. We invite you to reconnect with your own creativity while making art alongside others. Our unique art and writing process empowers you to bring meaningful change into your life and out to your community.

A non-profit arts organization located in Evanston, Illinois, OSP serves the entire Chicagoland area and far beyond. Our mission is to utilize and bring the creative process to people of all ages and backgrounds, and to empower them to turn to art for personal growth.

Through our workshops, classes, exhibitions, and community outreach, we encourage you to explore art as an arena for reflection and creative play.

Please explore our events and opportunities.

ART & RENEWAL

Register here!

November 17 / 1 pm - 4 pm

Art & Renewal is a workshop designed to support social workers, counselors, therapists, educators, medical professionals, body workers, first responders, community organizers--any helping practitioner whose work is high stress, emotionally demanding, and prone to burn-out. Developing a sustainable creative practice is a simple and effective way to release stress, restore empathy, and create balance and congruence within our personal and professional lives.

 
 
Welcome
Connecting with Evanston and our surrounding communities!
Open Studio Project is working with the community on a variety of projects this fall/winter. Once again we are partnering with Y.O.U. to provide art workshops with local schools. We are also continuing the pilot of our Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum in District 65 schools.
