You're invited to register for the fall term of "Chicago Heroes & Arts Journeys," the arts workshop series that Borderbend has been offering at Mozart Park. We're excited to begin the new term -- looking forward to the dynamic subjects that our facilitators will be choosing, and can't wait to find out what the exciting artworks the participants will be creating. Click here to register for the fall term; once you arrive at that page, use the phrase "Chicago arts" to narrow the search.
These arts workshops are free and open to the public, and all ages welcomed. Participants are invited to bring writing utensils and paper, although supplies will be provided if needed. Sometimes we play music and explore other art forms, so if you have a musical instrument that you'd like to bring, or if you have art supplies (e.g. colored pencils, pastels, etc.) you can bring those. We often use an upright piano during workshops as well.
Location: Mozart Park is in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. It's on the north side of Armitage Ave. -- several blocks east of Pulaski Rd., just south of Dickens and Shakespeare Streets. Our workshop series happens in the room to the left of fieldhouse lobby; some workshop sessions may happen outside in the park, weather permitting.
Transportation & parking: Mozart Park can be reached by public transportation (such as the #73 Armitage Ave. bus, and not far from the Logan Square and Western Ave. stations on the CTA's blue line. Mozart Park has a parking lot on Armitage, east of Avers.
