NEIGHBOR is a process-based art studio located in Milwaukee’s Northpoint neighborhood. Our studio provides children (8 months to 8 years) and their families unique opportunities to explore, play, create, and build relationships with their neighbors. We are passionate about open-ended play, getting messy, and helping children increase confidence and independence through art-making.
What is “process-art”?
Process art is “all about the making & the doing rather than finished project” - best defined by process-art queen Meri Cherry.
While it would be a dream for every child’s art piece to be frame worthy, we believe it is crucial we provide kiddos the opportunity to explore materials, develop independence and confidence, increase their natural curiosity, and have space to play and get messy.
You can expect NEIGHBOR classes and workshops to be heavily sensory based: think recycled and natural materials full of texture, traditional mediums like paint, watercolor, oil pastels, and found objects.
