For Immediate Release
Color Wheel Studio Announces a Members Only Studio Pass
March marks the beginning of the brand new studiotime pass at Bucktown’s Color
Wheel Studio (2016 W Concord Place; 773.661.1743; http://www.thecolorwheelstudio.com),
For just $150, families can purchase a membership card for 10 hours of creative fun to
be used at any time an Open Studio is blocked out on the Color Wheel calendar. Open
Studio times are unstructured sessions in which children of any age can discover a
multitude of media in a tactile way, all without the mess on your living room floor.
The studiotime punch card is sold at a greatly reduced rate of $100 off if purchased
separately, visit by visit. Easy, economical, and convenient, the studiotime punch card
is a great way for a mom or nanny on the go to drop by with the kids for an afternoon
of artistic endeavors. Just keep the card on hand and stop by whenever you are in the
neighborhood. Conveniently located within a family oriented community, Color Wheel
Studio is just off the main drag of Damen Avenue.
In celebration of this new membership punch card, Color Wheel Studio will open for
a month of Sunday Open Studios from 12 to 4pm, beginning with Sunday, March
5th. Usually reserved for birthday parties only, weekend hours have been extended to
welcome you and your kids for some family fun. Parents are encouraged to keep up with
Pop – Up Open Studio invitations during weekend hours via Color Wheel’s Facebook
page or Twitter feed.
Nationwide studies have shown that children who are exposed to the arts on a regular
basis perform better at writing, science, and math. These children are also more
motivated to learn with an engaged mind, demonstrating sustained attention, resulting in
greater self-confidence, empathy, and social tolerance. (Critical Links: Learning in the

Color Wheel Studio is owned an operated by Donald Jackson, a contemporary artist
living and working in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood for more than 20
years. First and foremost, though, he is a dad. After noticing the specific artistic and
communicative developments of his own young son through exposure to the visual arts,
the most natural thing for this dad to do was to open an art studio for children.
Committed to this community, his wife is a proud Bucktown business owner since 2001. Their son is
in his second year at Burr Elementary.
