Blogging has opened up my eyes to the vast world of tremendously crafty and inspirational people out there. When I was catching up on my daily blog reading (really, I have to divide into a few smaller chunks of time per day because of my OCD nature when it comes to my Google Reader), I was so inspired by the sunprints on Design*Sponge. It made me want to expand my technical skill into other art mediums... so I Yelp'd for a while and this is what I found:
Lillstreet Art Center
They have adult classes ranging from textiles and figure painting (both right up my alley), to glass-blowing and silk screening. The best part: the prices aren't so outrageous and the vibe is pretty low key. As I'm still new to Chicago, I'm looking forward to meeting people with similar interests and learn a few things along the way.
It turns out I missed the fall session start dates by a few weeks, but hopefully I can drop in the studio for a few sessions and learn a few things. I can't wait to get into a real studio and get my hands dirty with others again!
