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!

Thank You, Highland Park Neighborhood Council!

We are very grateful to the Highland Park Neighborhood Council for awarding us our 2nd Neighborhood Purpose Grant last night! We are very excited that the council supports our efforts with Wild Art, and we can’t wait to find a home for our piece. We have been working hard looking for exhibition sites, and can’t wait to share with you all once a final place is secured!

Our crowdfunding campaign for Wild Art was a success, thanks to generous donations from people just like YOU! We were able to raise 70% of our goal of $20,000. Of course we were shooting for 100%, but we are very happy with what we were able to accomplish together, and can’t wait to apply what we learned to make our future campaigns even better!

The funds we raised will be used to complete our Wild Art sculpture, using 200 metal wildlife paintings by teens from Highland Park. We will keep you updated on our progress as things move forward.

If you donated to our campaign and selected a reward, we will get your gift out to you as soon as possible. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing time.
