Que el sufrimiento hable | Elana Mann
Crea tu propia escultura de sonido para la autoexpresión que cura.

Únete a la artista Elana Mann para dejar que nuestras voces y cuerpos retumben, estrépiten y suenen a todo volumen. Los participantes aprenderán a hacer instrumentos musicales y megáfonos utilizando materiales sencillos para el hogar.  La discusión y los ejercicios se centrarán en cómo escuchar conscientemente a nosotros mismos y a los demás es clave para el bienestar. El taller culminará con la escucha en grupo y la fabricación de sonidos.

Materiales: Papel blanco grueso (se puede descargar la imagen de megáfono que vamos a utilizar aquí y imprimirlo o recrearlo), arroz seco / frijoles, tijeras, pintura, cepillo de pintura, tubo de papel higiénico, cinta adhesiva

*Estos materiales estarán disponibles para recogerlos en un kit de arte en la oficina de 18th Street Arts Center. Enviaremos detalles una vez que se registre a el taller. Si no puede recogerlos, puede encontrar estos materiales en casa.

Arts Learning Lab @ Home: Wellbeing Through Artmaking

This May, we are thrilled to present three new Arts Learning Lab @ Home art-making workshops for families all around wellbeing and self-compassion. May is Mental Health Awareness month, and taking time for creativity together with loved ones is a key part of self-care in these uncertain times. We are partnering with WE RISE LA to bring these moments for creative growth to you, centered around the theme of wellbeing as we navigate coming out of a pandemic and transitioning to new routines together.

We will be providing Arts Learning Lab @ Home Art Kits with materials for each workshop that will be available for pick up from 1639 18th Street, Santa Monica, for those that live in the LA Metro area, but all materials will also be easily found at home or at a local supply store. More information on Art Kit pick-up will be provided once you register for a workshop. Supplies are limited.

All of the virtual workshops will be presented on Zoom, and interpretation will be provided in both English and Spanish.


Este mes de mayo, estamos encantados de presentar tres nuevos talleres del Laboratorio de Arte y Aprendizaje en Casa para las familias en torno al bienestar y la autocompasión. Mayo es el mes enfocado en la salud mental, y tomar tiempo para la creatividad con los seres queridos es una parte clave del autocuidado en estos tiempos inciertos. Nos asociamos con WE RISE LA para traerles estos momentos de crecimiento creativo, centrados en el tema del bienestar mientras navegamos la salida de una pandemia y transitamos juntos hacia nuevas rutinas.

Proporcionaremos kits de arte para el Laboratorio de Arte y Aprendizaje en Casa con materiales para cada taller que estarán disponibles para ser recogidos en 1639 18th Street, Santa Monica, para aquellos que viven en el condado de Los Ángeles, pero todos los materiales también se encontrarán fácilmente en casa o en una tienda de manualidades. Se le proporcionará más información sobre la recogida de los kits de arte una vez que se registre para un taller. Los suministros son limitados.

Todos los talleres virtuales se presentarán en Zoom, y la interpretación se proporcionará tanto en inglés como en español.
