Because our founding Artist, Veronica Cuculich, was a visual artist, the studio began as a visual arts program. Our community uses a system of collective decision making and grows based on the needs of our current members. Using that system, each studio will incorporate a variety of artistic mediums that fit the needs of our artists. Along with Visual Arts, the Chicago studio features music and printmaking initiatives and the North Shore studio features music and performance.
