“Artistic License with Rachel Woodall” on wgn plus

What is art, anyway? Many people would list off the basics: painting, music, theater…but Artistic License is here to push those limits. Artistic License aims to expand the listener’s definition of art and appreciation for all of the above. Whether they’re into music, karate, or wilderness survival skills, local and national artists of all kinds are featured on the show. Let’s no longer feel intimidated or bored when we hear the word “art.” It’s likely something in your life that you’re passionate about fits that category, too.
