this morning i was lucky enough to visit the open studio project in evanston to take some pictures, meet some people & to get a feel of the organization. open studio is a non-profit, social service organization who's mission is to "utilize and bring the creative process to individuals of all ages and backgrounds, and to empower people to turn to art for personal growth". they encourage individual creative processes, as well as activities through collaborations with different community organizations. the studio offers various art classes for both adults and children and occasionally host events and exhibits. they're pretty much an amazing local studio, and i am so happy to announce that i will be planning their annual fundraiser for next year! i am starting the planning process now - choosing the venue, picking the theme, getting the budget finalized, etc. then once the new year hits, we will be in full planning mode until june when the event takes place. i'm so excited to be apart of putting together such a fun event to raise money for a great local investment :]
stay tuned in the upcoming months to learn more about this event!
