Through Lines: Mujeres Aprovechando el Máximo

If you missed our November 22, 2020, 1:00 PM event, you can still see the virtual exhibit.

Ruckus Roots presents an online culmination and discussion with artists from the FEAST LA community repurposing household items to make art during the pandemic. Facilitated by Teresa Flores with assistance from Scarlett Reyes. This exhibition is the outcome of a series of online workshops that took place during Fall 2020 where a small group of women from South LA gathered weekly to exchange ideas and develop new skills for repurposing household materials to create art and a more pleasant home environment during the pandemic.  Thank you to the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs for their support of this project. 
 
PASt Online Classes 

Intersections allowed viewers a peek inside the lives and work of the people within the intersectional environmentalism movement via virtual studio tours. From activist, artist, urban gardener, community organizers and other professional in the movement, we learned so much from these conversations, and you can too, but viewing them on our IGTV page
 

 

Fridays with Friends was an online artist residency program featuring a new local artist each week, with a new theme and artistic how-to class each week. Featured artists included Jamia Weir, Robin Banks and Julio Muñoz. Activities included making plarn (plastic yarn), nature mandalas and collage self portraits. Classes took place via Zoom every Friday at noon PDT from April 3 – May 2, 2020.

Food for Thought was an online version of our collaboration with FEAST for All in South Central LA, was for school-aged youth and explores healthy eating and creating art from food packaging. Participants learned collaging techniques as well as how to incorporate the elements of design into mixed media compositions. It took place with teaching artist Allegra at 3pm PST on Wednesdays through April 29, 2020. We transitioned this program from in-person to online programming in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, and look forward to continuing it in any form this fall!
