Mooncat Recess

Mooncat Recess is a series of K-12 workshops in which the Holly and the Neighbors team will teach young people art maki

ng techniques and skills. There will also be a deep thinking component of each session that will encourage the students to reflect on their work and their voice as an artist in the world.

Professor Lucky is a series of community-driven adult art making educational get-togethers geared toward skill sharing, passion passing, brainstorming, and fire feeding. With these workshops, we will provide a schedule of programmed events meant to induce curiosity and creativity among the people of Chicagoland.

If you are interested in being a workshop leader, please send in the following materials:

  • Lesson plan (2 pages max)

  • Supporting materials (e.g. images, videos, writing samples)
  • Proposed workshop dates + location (optional)

Pink Line Poems

Pink Line Poems is a writer residency on the Pink Line. With this residency, we are swiping artists in to the El at the 18th street stop and inviting them to ride the Pink Line all the way around, to the Loop and to 54th/Cermak,  while creating new works of language based art. A brown bag lunch will be provided.

  • The first PLP resident will be Jonas Eisenbeis
