THROUGH LINES: MUJERES APROVECHANDO EL MÁXIMO
We did it! Our fall program, Through Lines, was a great success! Combining efforts to fight food waste and single-use plastics, we worked with underrepresented community members in South L.A to make one-of-a kind artworks and come together in a virtual creative space.
This collaboration with our partner organization, FEAST
, was offered as a series of free, online “family crafting classes” to their constituents by East L.A-based artist, Teresa Flores
. Program participants learned to repurpose plastic waste from food packaging through a variety of creative techniques, such as weaving and sculpture. They then explored their own ideas, processes and materials to create unique and personal works of meaning. It was so amazing to see what this group came up with week after week!
After six weeks of workshops and idea exchange, we held our very first virtual (and bilingual) art exhibition to share the culmination of our work together! We had a wonderful time listening to our group of program participants share about their work and the process of learning to work with everyday objects and recycled materials.
If you missed the LIVE OPENING EXHIBITION, you can still see the virtual exhibit from the comfort of your own couch (stay home – be safe!). Don’t miss it – it’s a wonderful and inspiring collection of work! ♻️❤️🌟
