> DESCRIPTION

This is the second year that Victor Cass, with the assistance of others in the art community, has taught free art classes to homeless children, teens and adults.  The program, originally called Art by Families in Transition, has been adopted full-time by the Armory Center for the Arts and recently received a grant from Los Angeles County.

 Victor Cass volunteered his time on Sundays for 12 weeks this past summer/fall to teach the adult classes, while Tricia Garcia of the Armory Center, as well as other Armory artists, taught the children and teens. Various framing shops in the community graciously donated the framing of the finished art work, including: Arnuun Gallery, Nova Picture Framing, Mack Rogers & Associates, Decco, United Picture & Framing Company, and Lt. Darryl Qualls' Ebony Art Gallery.  

The opening reception was Saturday, November 15, 2008, 2-4:00 pm, at the Armory Center for the Arts, 145 N. Raymond Ave., in Old Pasadena.  The art show runs through December 31.  All proceeds from art sales go directly to the homeless artists and their families.
