Working on #pinchpots at @torreselapa this Saturday morning with the #uclavapae team. I don’t really know what I’m doing but after this challenging week of political highs & lows, and the fires currently raging I figured the world needs more #angels & #clay #ceramics #terracotta #firststeps #amateur #artsinthecommunity
Happy Friday from #latinoproducersactionnetwork and #uclavapae - from the West Side to the East Side and from paper to canvas - we’re proud to support the next generation of artists!

VAPAE is pleased to introduce our November 2018 Teaching Artist of the Month, Rob Tom! Rob Tom shares: “They say the best way to learn something is to teach it, not only do I get to refine my own skills by teaching students, I can see their perspective which makes me rethink how I am looking at something.” Check out Rob Tom’s full interview at uclavapae.tumblr.com !

WEEK 6~  Creativity Sessions at Ad Astra! 📚📏 This week we took our beautiful water colors and turned them into artist books! 
Students were opened to the whole color spectrum and even some glitter 😉  All you need is a needle and thread, and sometimes a ruler, turning our painterly narratives into a final masterpiece collection ! 💫

WEEK 4 - Creativity Sessions at Ad Astra! ✏🖌✂️ This week we learned about basic color theory through water colors 🎨
Students were encouraged to express themselves through color and contrast utilizing complimentary and tertiary colors.
Building off of the knowledge of book binding from last week, we plan to make new books with our water color paintings! 
Students drew inspiration from abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko! 💡

WEEK 3 - Creativity Sessions at Ad Astra! 📏📐📜🎨 This week we tackle the pivotal concepts of recontextualization through the explorations of Maywa Denki's fun and creative instruments 🎶
Students did their own research and binded their own books to sketch out their ideas for fun instruments made out of found/repurposed objects in their lives. 
Pictured in the last slide is the awesome Otamatone created by Denki and VAPAE teaching artist Rob Tom demonstarting its dynamic sound!

VAPAE is pleased to introduce our Teaching Artist of the Month October 2018, Isabella Granados! Bella shares: “Seeing a student’s face light up when you show them a new way of making art reminds me of how excited I was when I first started out drawing. Also, seeing how proud a student is of something they made really makes me want to make art. Witnessing the different approaches to the creative process is very informative to my own artistic practice.” Check out Bella’s full interview at uclavapae.tumblr.com !

What just happened? Another 3 day Teacher Institute partnering with the @hammer_museum and @uclavapae in the books, but its going to take us all at least another month of processing the wealth of thought and creativity that occurs when teachers are your students. Today I helped educators make block print costuming for their performance of an original poetry and movement piece within a #LaurenHalsey installation.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in this program and this cause with all my heart!

Today, we celebrate the amazing career of an Artist, Professor, Community Leader, Arts Educator, Arts Advocate, and Founder of VAPAE: Barbara Drucker 💙❤️
.
On an recent interview, Barbara said - “It was also important to connect the program to the community of Los Angeles. I began the teaching sequence for our VAPAE students in the K–12 classrooms across the city because I wanted our students to experience first-hand the reality that these teachers have to face daily. Students that go through VAPAE—whether they decide to pursue teaching as a career or not—develop respect for K–12 teachers, and that can affect policy. Politicians often state that the teachers are irresponsible and lazy, that they're not working hard, and that they're not doing the right thing. Our students have gone into those schools, and know first-hand that most teachers are working as hard as they can, and are very devoted to their students. VAPAE students can then take that knowledge and become informed community members and policy advocates for teachers and public education.

While most VAPAE students do not go on to become full-time teachers, through our program, they learn how they can engage with and contribute to their communities. They learn how they can incorporate outreach and social justice into their artistic practice, in addition to developing their professional careers.”

On an recent interview, Barbara said - “It was also important to connect the program to the community of Los Angeles. I began the teaching sequence for our VAPAE students in the K–12 classrooms across the city because I wanted our students to experience first-hand the reality that these teachers have to face daily. Students that go through VAPAE—whether they decide to pursue teaching as a career or not—develop respect for K–12 teachers, and that can affect policy. Politicians often state that the teachers are irresponsible and lazy, that they're not working hard, and that they're not doing the right thing. Our students have gone into those schools, and know first-hand that most teachers are working as hard as they can, and are very devoted to their students. VAPAE students can then take that knowledge and become informed community members and policy advocates for teachers and public education. While most VAPAE students do not go on to become full-time teachers, through our program, they learn how they can engage with and contribute to their communities. They learn how they can incorporate outreach and social justice into their artistic practice, in addition to developing their professional careers.” . .
