ReVISIONS of LA Workshop (September 2)
After two successful years of inviting families to engage with our Hollywood surroundings via drop-in art classes with local artists, ReVISIONS of LA is coming to a close at LACE. Come celebrate in a final workshop, in which we will be making pinhole cameras in addition to providing instruction and supplies for drawing and collage to re-visit and re-imagine our neighborhood.
The workshop is free! Drop in anytime between 1-4PM to participate, literally, in building some perspective on the past two years of ReVISIONS of LA.
