Creative Enterprise

At Envision, we believe that creative endeavors nourish the mind and the body. From a Chicago Park District after school program to a juried gallery exhibit, from a chilly spring morning at the raised flower beds to a sunny farmer’s market loaded with fresh product, Envision program participants and our community partners are engaging in experiences designed to stimulate the senses and provide a depth of experience unlike any other.

Through our innovative programming we’re building thought leadership in the creative community, producing art and food that’s fit for Chicago’s finest institutions. If you’d like to get involved and join us on our creative journeys, please fill our contact form (link to standard Contact us form). We look forward to connecting.

Arts Studio Program

The Envision Arts Studio Program was built on the concept that artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities can maintain a disciplined practice and artistic independence in a community setting. It provides artists with opportunities to exhibit and sell their work, receiving both recognition and financial compensation.
