Occasionally I like to bring web sites to your attention.Â I don’t arbitrarily pick sites…these are hand-chosen, finely tempered sites with class and sophistication. ;-)Â This post’s theme is “art & education”.
Progress Gallery is a fantastic business that I’ve had the pleasure of being acquainted with for a number of years now (I even helped them move into their current space several years ago).Â I was delighted to hear that they put up a website, opened an Etsy shop where you can buy prints and other things, and Bob Reddy, the owner/artist, did an interview with Soulpancake.Â Their gallery is located in Evanston, Illinois, so be sure to stop by if you’re in the area.
The Chicago Youth Animators “are a group of professionals from diverse ethnic, professional, and religious backgrounds who are interested in helping adolescents in Chicago schools develop the qualities and skills they will need to achieve their own life goals.” They use the junior youth materials published by Palabra, and combine “reading material, group activities, and community service projects.”
