Ox-Bow

Founded on the shores of Lake Michigan as an escape from the city, Ox-Bow’s campus encompasses 115-acres of pristine natural forests, dunes, a lagoon, and historic buildings. It is both defined and protected by the landscape that inspires the artists who live and work here. Somewhere between everyday life and this natural world that is so foreign to many of us, lies the space to open up routine, to envision new possibility, and to experiment with new materials, practices, and modalities.

As much as Ox-Bow is a place, it is also an experience. Through its affiliation with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ox-Bow offers one and two-week courses for credit and non-credit for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students in 6 main studio areas—Ceramics, Glass, Painting and Drawing, Papermaking, Print, and Metals. Ox-Bow’s courses are diverse, ranging in focus from the functional to the sculptural; from traditional to contemporary; and from representational to conceptual. It is the synthesis of this diverse range of studio practices, and the artists who come to engage with them, that offers the diversity of opinion, viewpoint, and discussion that makes the experience of learning at Ox-Bow so rich.
