Your Contribution Helps Art Change Lives

Open Studio Project, a non-profit arts organization located in Evanston, Illinois, serves the entire Chicagoland area and far beyond. Beginning as an intention to make art and be of service to the community, OSP is now a thriving center for classes, workshops, trainings, and exhibits that serve over 1500 people each year. We offer classes for hundreds of at- risk youth, hold a dozen unique exhibits, provide six weekend-long training sessions and half dozen introductory sessions each year– serving many for a reduced fee or no cost at all.

OSP founder Dayna Block has taught the OSP Process at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for the past 10 years. In her “Art Therapy in the Community” class students are stunned by how the OSP Process has literally changed their lives :
