Please join ReVISIONS of LA for a family-friendly workshop at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) in Hollywood to make stamps out of potatoes and draw together as a catalyst for discussion about the way urban space effects our daily lives. Three professional artists will be running the workshop, providing instruction and encouraging conversation.
This workshop is free. All materials for making stamps and drawing will be provided, and all ages are welcome to drop in.
