Art of Hope & Healing
The goal of this initiative is to help build community and connection for Will County Residents.
Throughout history, art in many forms has been used to make sense of our world, connect with each other and heal. These past years have been stressful in a multitude of ways. Join us in-person or online and learn how to use art as a tool to heal, connect and foster hope within our communities.
(All workshops/classes are free of charge and supplies will be provided)

Are you new to art or need some inspiration to get started? Below are just a few examples of the projects people have completed, many of which were done at our weekly Open Art Studio hosted in Mokena and on Zoom. Due to the hard work of the participants and the open-ended nature of the studio, every piece completed is special in it's own way.
