About Us

The Women's Live Artist Studio features the artwork and products of local Chicago women artists and makers. Join us as we paint live at Navy Pier, giving visitors a window inside the creative process.  Each day features a new artist. We are located in the Family Pavilion at Navy Pier, Chicago's #1 indoor tourist attraction, right next door to the Chicago Children's Museum.

Women's LIVE Artist Studio of Chicago is a community of female artists who are passionate about creating and sharing their art with others. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds and mediums, but we share a common goal of empowering women in the art world. We believe that women deserve equal recognition and opportunities, and we work to make that a reality in Chicago's art scene.
