Accessibility is a core element of the Chicago Industrial Arts and Design Center’s Mission. We want you to be able to work with permanent materials, industrial processes, and technology to create any type of object.
We provide access to our industrial workspace, tools, and shop equipment that you need to make 3D objects whether you are enrolled in classes or not. After all, having access to the appropriate space with the appropriate tools are the major hurdles for every 3D object maker.
In addition to classes and workshops, our Studio Department shops are available for use through our Studio Access programs:
Open Studio Access (OSA) is monitored work time outside of Class time. OSA is available to certified Students, Student Members, and Access Members during scheduled time slots.
Advanced Studio Access (ASA) is instructional work time during unfilled Core Classes. ASA is available to current Students and Student Members of the Department only.
