Join Intuit for Art After Work, a free series of facilitated art-making workshops. This month, Intuit is partnering with The WasteShed, a nonprofit organization that provides Chicago with an organized, affordable and reliable resource for repurposed art, craft and school materials and with a dynamic center for activities related to sustainability, art, craft, education and material culture. Together Intuit and The WasteShed welcome Chicago artist Gregory Diaz to facilitate a workshop inspired by his artistic practice. In the in-person workshop, participants will twist together wire, buttons, jewelry and found objects into a face pin of their own design.
Materials at Intuit
- Jewelry wire in an array of colors
- Copper wire
Art After Work is for everyone, including beginners and people who say they “are not artists.” We can all be artists! It is a guided workshop, and instruction will begin at 5 p.m. in the museum’s performance space.
Face coverings are encouraged following The WasteShed’s practices. Please contact Lindsey Wurz at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions related to accessibility accommodations.
Art After Work is free to join! To show your support to Intuit, please consider the pay-what-you-can option when you complete your reservation. Your contributions help ensure the sustainability of our public programs and support guest lecturers and teaching artists.
