Chicago Artists Coalition has hit pause on education programs through 2021, due to funding constraints. Please check back in 2022 for updates.


Chicago Artists Coalition designed our education programs to offer resources that empower artists to nurture and sustain dynamic creative careers, including skill-building workshops, creative activities, collaborative seminars, workshops, and one-on-one consultations.

Our education programs seek to provide artists with resources and support as they cultivate their creative practices. We hope to enable Chicago artists to devote time for introspection, and to engage and share knowledge with each other and a range of practitioners in the field.

CAC offers two artist educational residency programs:

FIELD/WORK: a six-month workshop and practice planning seminar for artists of all career stages

LAUNCH: a three-day intensive practice development workshop for recent undergraduate artists (invitation only)
