The Co-Prosperity School is an Artist-Run School that has met regularly at the Co-Prosperity Sphere since 2010. We run 8 week sessions. Participants find a place where intelligent dialogue on art takes place. Some find new tools to help their career. Others form friendships. The class also offers people a space to discuss what is currently happening art-wise in Chicago. Best of all we think participants are pleased to meet the people that shape the contours of our art ecology.
The 8 week Jam Session is 150 dollars
Start time is 6:30 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere, ends around 930
