ASAP @ LACE
LACE is located in the heart of Hollywood, an ideal place to observe and contemplate the collision of Los Angeles — its intricate networks hum with activity as resources are transferred and spaces are reconstructed through use or development. ASAP’s 2011 Re-Visions of LA drawing workshops will build conversations around how our urban environments are constructed and what that means to our every day lives. Each month a new group of artists will spend an afternoon at LACE providing free drawing classes.
All levels and ages are welcome as we talk about Hollywood while drawing our surroundings.
All workshops are free, and all materials will be supplied.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Nano Rubio graduated with an MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2011 and received a BA in studio art from Cal State Bakersfield. His most recent paintings, which suggest voids, scrapes, and areas of intense vibration through the use of intricate abstract marks, can be seen through the end of June at Autonomie gallery in downtown Los Angeles.

ASAP (after school arts program) is an arts education collective with a faculty and student population that is always in flux. Led by Michael Ano and Elizabeth Watkins, ASAP is motivated by the belief that “Arts education should be available to everyone.” They will organize a series of adult, family and teen programs that meditate on the landscape and populace of Hollywood and its relationship to LACE. www.asap-la.blogspot.com orfacebook.com/pages/Revisions-of-LA/215809585128067
