Want to experiment with new media and art techniques in the museum? Join us!
We offer workshops one Saturday each month all year round, with new artistic practices and exhibitions to explore. 

Saturday workshops combine gallery experiences with art making in the studio. Guided by a teaching artist, participants explore works of art in the museum and then get the chance to create their own artworks using a wide variety of media and techniques, from traditional to digital.

Selected Saturdays, 11:00–4:00
$10 members, $12 nonmembers
Registration required; please use the link below each program to register.

Chicago is well known for its rich history in spoken word. If you want a chance to showcase your poetry or to learn more about the art of spoken word, come out to this workshop and find inspiration in the galleries. We will include some creative art making along the way; no prior experience necessary.
Registration opens January 1.
