□ The Los Angeles Plein Air Festival is here! It's such a great opportunity to get out there and connect with our city through painting. Registration is free. I'm planning on painting on Thursday and Sunday both from 10am-1pm.
The Festival is a free and open event. After stamping your boards or canvases at Raw Materials, you can bring your outdoor painting gear and pop it in a public place, or attend their planned paint-outs.
We'll be painting in DTLA on Thursday and Sunday both from 10am to 1pm. Location to be announced on painting day.
Send an email if you'd like to join us. We can bring painting gear and materials for you when we go out there to paint (Thursday and Sunday).
Get an extra session to work, develop, and elevate your paintings.
Art show opening reception will be Friday April 27th 6-9pm at As We Dwell □1131 E 5th St, LA.

□Have you heard of the “Eliminating Government-funded Oil-painting Act”? Sounds awful, right? Well, it was singed into law a few days ago.□ here
□ Based on this hilarious ad, you should definitely join this insurance company in addition to attending our painting workshops.□ here
□ Damien Hirst has a solo show at Gagosian in Beverly Hills. They're showing his latest pointillist paintings. Less famous artists in an aboriginal Australian community have been doing the same thing, apparently, much earlier than Mr. Hirst, but unlike Hirst, their paintings are not for sale for $1.4 mil. Which ones do you like best?□ here
□ Is it racism when a doctor from Princeton becomes the only person qualified enough for this position? Or is it just that there is no one with a heritage connection qualified enough to be in charge of telling stories through these objects?□ here
□ This is one of the most brilliant ideas for an art show I've read about in a long time. Lots of artists work at museums in order to get supplemental income to help their practices, and they never get acknowledged. I wish this concept would spread.□ here
