Art&Grind Thank You's.......!












The Pros Arts Studio Teen Arts Mentorship Program would like to extend our warmest thanks and appreciation to the amazing Artists that participated in this past summer's "Art&Grind Panel Series". During the Summer of 2011 Pros Arts Studio engaged area youth and artists in a one of a kind panel series that explored the paths and career choices of artists across several disciplines in order to offer aspiring youth artists an opportunity to learn from those currently making and working in the arts here in the City of Chicago. In addition, two organizations in the Pilsen community opened their doors to us in support of the panel series, so we want to extend a BIG thanks to Yollocalli Arts Reach and Calles y Suenos for their continued support!

We want to recognize the amazing Artists that donated their time and expertise with us and we hope to connect again soon in the near future!

"Art & Grind is a series of presentations featuring Chicago-based Artists making it happen and who have knowledge they would like to share about their respective fields with area youth considering creative careers. Presenter panels will talk about their work, share successes and challenges with youth and offer words of advice to those hopping to make it happen them selves! If you’re looking for some first-hand knowledge, or just curious how they did it (and are doing it), then check out the dates and artists below and sign up for some great information!"
