A free, evening event, Earth Night: Planet Art School Day is an initiative of Loyola University Chicago’s North Lake Shore Earth Day, which ran consecutively the last four years to share knowledge among neighbors in its surrounding neighborhoods of Andersonville, Edgewater, Lincoln Square, Ravenswood, and Rogers Park, about urban sustainability issues and solutions in an engaging and hands-on environment.

This year, several creation stations are curated and facilitated by professional artists where participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their relationship with the Earth via art making and writing prompts. Last year’s stations included screen printing on reclaimed fabric, collage making with repurposed paper bags and magazines, painting on salvaged wood, paper-making with recycled paper, reflective writing and a “trash sculpture” made from entirely reclaimed and salvaged material; variation of these stations are slated for 2012 with a backdrop of live music performed by local musicians and DJs.
