Through the month of March, RuckusRoots has been enjoying a new collaboration with Black Box Consortium. This non profit organization was founded with the mission of empowering youth to pursue an education and profession in the field of Art and Design. To do that, Black Box is creating workshops and mentorship programs for our community in East Los Angeles. Our first workshop series was called Discovery through Drawing and was held on three Sundays in March.

This beginning workshop focused on contour drawing, watercolor and pencil drawing, and was offered for free to any age group. It was a great starting off point for our Art a la Carte series, which will feature a variety of workshops taught by skilled instructors in many different areas of design and art.

Stay tuned for our next workshop, to be announced soon!
