ProtoStudio is a new, advanced after school program at Lane Tech College Prep in Chicago, IL. It consists of a small, interdisciplinary group of students who discuss and create art as well as learn about professional practices. Visiting artists and off-site meetings accompany the classroom meetings led by the instructor, Michael Webster. Mrs. Amy Moore and Artreach at Lillstreet help facilitate the program.
The current ProtoStudio students are:
Ruth, Sarah K., Georgia, Sarah P., Sabrina, Elizabeth, Natalia, Josh, Julia, Greg, and Gena.
Michael Webster is a current MFA student at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Currently his art work considers public spaces/access, historical memory/traces, and collaboration. He began teaching ProtoStudio as a way to better understand the transitory moments and accessibility issues with education.
