The Drawing Workshop-click to see story aired on Chicago Tonight 8.22.2013
Thanks to a group of artists* drawing together to preserve a Chicago Legacy-The Drawing Workshop was brought to the attention of Bruce Robbins, founder of Lillstreet and this valuable art institution was saved. After 40 years George Soto’s “The Drawing Workshop” will continue under Lillstreet after August. For more information email here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Founded by George Sotos over forty years ago at the landmarked Tree Studios building in Chicago, The Drawing Workshop is a large art studio (or atelier) at 4011 N. Ravenswood, Chicago, IL. It is near the Brown Line El stop at Montrose and the Metra station at Lawrence.
The Drawing Workshop is open to everyone. For a small studio/model fee, those who love drawing from life and learning a “visual vocabulary” may participate in weekly sessions. These sessions meet the needs of professional working artists and serious amateur artists who receive critiques and personalized instruction.
