Side Street Studio Arts employs highly experienced, professional artist-educators to facilitate all workshops, and educational classes, and programs, of whom we stand by wholeheartedly. With mixed-aged classes in particular, we encourage parents of younger artists to carefully reflect on whether their young artist is able to learn and create in an environment where adult students are present. We ensure that classrooms are supervised by our talented staff of artist-educators, assuring that no class or presentation consists of gratuitous or explicitly controversial images or terminology. Art, including instruction and discussion, is subjective. Therefore, all students must understand that some classes may involve themes, terminology, visual components, and experiences that may lie outside their own personal beliefs or feelings. We at Side Street Studio Arts take this very seriously, and we pride ourselves in creating safer spaces for students of all ages to work, play, and develop their process and educational pursuits. If you have questions about any of our programming that may pertain to your student, child, family, or friend, feel free to reach out to us. 

*Some classes may contain adult themes, terminology, or visual components, including but not limited to classical works.


Community Moves has been the inspiring arts education and outreach arm of Core Project Chicago since 2009 and Side Street Studio Arts since 2015. Over the years, the organization has successfully worked with communities all over the United States to bring dance, media, and visual arts to young artists and new audiences. Community Moves staff became professional artists because of the educators who touched and continue to touch their lives. It is at the heart of the Community Moves mission to constantly work to inspire and give voice to a new generation of working artists and art-lovers, who will continue to expand, challenge and participate in the exciting world of art.
