Welcome to Open Studio Project!

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

For more than 18 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 interested individuals and groups of all ages and backgrounds, and to empower people to turn to art for personal growth.

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

Check out the many events and opportunities on our website, and don't hesitate to call for more information or drop by to visit.

Upcoming Exhibit

"Les Visages": Mirrors of the Soul


Exhibition Dates: February 24-March 25, 2017

Please visit Open Studio Project on Friday, February 24 from 6:30-8:30PM to celebrate this new show!

Laurence is an international pharmaceutical consultant, but she has always enjoyed painting and drawing. Laurence and her husband, Jean-Luc, moved from France to Evanston in July 2014.

Throughout most of her life, Laurence traveled all over the world: Africa, Asia, Europe, and South American trying to capture human emotion. Laurence's work centers on the art of 'les visages'-faces.

"Faces, especially the eyes, are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them", says Laurence

 
 
Welcome
Connecting with Evanston and our surrounding communities!

Open Studio Project is working with the community with a variety of projects this winter. This month and next OSP is partnering again with Y.O.U. to provide art workshops in three local schools. With Foundation 65, we've created a new children's curriculum meeting Social Emotional Learning goals, and are piloting it in three special needs classrooms. Community is everything here at OSP!
