Each summer, Artists Working in Education (A.W.E.) partners with the Milwaukee County Parks and Milwaukee Recreation to provide a Summer Truck Studio Program to Milwaukee kids.

The trucks travel to 18 Milwaukee County parks and playgrounds between June 26 and August 4 to provide free drop-in art activities for kids to do while playing at the parks, with the guidance of professional artists, art educators and interns.

The artists are at the playgrounds from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and kids can come and go as they please creating their make-it-and-take-it projects.

Here's where the trucks will be for the next six weeks.
