ReVISIONS of LA with Jocelyn Grau, Veronica Duarte, and Andrew Sexton

August 5, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

05 August 2012, 7 – 9 pm
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.
