DESCRIPTION

La Casita is a vibrant neighborhood center maintained by the Armory Center for the Arts which offers a variety of programs and studio courses to the Madison neighborhood community. Community partners include the Arroyo Time Bank, Centro de EducaciĆ³n del Pueblo, CEP Teens, Hombres Unidos, Latino Heritage, Madison Elementary, Pasadena Youth Center and the San Gabriel Valley Literary Council. Madison neighborhood residents of all ages take part in Armory led art classes such as digital art and silk screening and participate in programs such as parental training, after school tutoring for middle school and teen students, English language classes for adults, job preparation training, as well as pre-school classes. Since 2010, the Armory Exhibitions Department has produced a temporary public art program in the garden in front of La Casita.


The Armory strives to create innovative, high-quality programming that is sensitive to community needs.
