Youth Arts Workshop: Expressive Tree Trinkets

  • Logan Square Comfort Station (map)

Ages 5-12 welcome. This program is free and open to the public!

Children are welcome to participate in an open-studio workshop between 11am - 3pm (while materials last) at the lawn outside of Logan Square's Comfort Station. The open-studio workshop will provide children with materials to draw and design their own objects to hang from the trees in the lawn and also make another object to take home. We will be using shrinky dink paper to draw on it, then with the help of an adult volunteer we will bake them to harden. There is also an option to glue on to them additional decorations, and finally hang them on trees. Throughout this activity, the facilitator will engage children in a conversation around giving and taking within our community and how we are using our creativity to participate in the community. Children can witness their artworks included in the communal space as a form of their expression being heard and welcomed. Children can also take home an object that they make, as a symbol of also receiving when giving back to our community.
