Arts Park

The Waukegan Park District’s Arts Park van will be on the road bringing free arts and crafts to parks and events in Waukegan. Participants will have the opportunity to create an art or craft project while they watch guest artists create their own art. The arts programming provided by the Arts Park van is supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, whose mission is to build a strong, creative, and connected Illinois through the arts.

According to the National Recreation & Park Association, like traditional sports programs, the arts also foster positive growth for all ages. Arts help youth build self-confidence, improve self-expression, enhance problem solving, encourage innovation, and build community.
