About Snow City Arts
Snow City Arts (SCA) inspires and educates children and youth in hospitals through the arts. SCA provides one-on-one and small group instruction in the visual arts, creative writing, poetry, theater, music, dance and media arts to patients at Rush University Children’s Hospital, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and Children’s Hospital University of Illinois (UIC). In March 2020, Snow City Arts’ programming expanded to include virtual instruction to meet the needs of pediatric patients at our hospital partners. SCA is now employing a hybrid programming model, with Teaching Artists active both at hospital sites as well as virtually.
Snow City Arts’ curricula are steeped in studio practices and benchmarked by the National Core Arts Standards and Common Core State Standards. SCA works in partnership with Chicago Public Schools and suburban school districts. With permission, student learning outcomes and portfolios are sent to their schools in order to generate credit assignment for work completed with SCA. The Snow City Arts team includes an administrative staff of 5 and an artistic staff of 8 part-time, professional Teaching Artists, as well as numerous work-study students and volunteers. As a small, yet mighty organization, our team values an “all hands-on-deck” approach balanced with a commitment to wellness. Snow City Arts is committed to generating a work environment that centers on learning, equity, and inclusivity. A cohort member of Enrich Chicago, SCA is committed to advancing systemic change in the arts and is building and implementing a vision and framework for anti-racist work across the organization.
