ALL @ HOME-Family History: Sewing & Collage w/ Austyn de Lugo
Join us for a one hour workshop led by teaching artist Austyn de Lugo. In this collaborative intergenerational workshop between the Armory Center for the Arts and 18th Street Art Center, we will examine our own representations of the self, family portraits, and our family histories as we draw inspiration from German artist Annegret Soltau. Using a combination of techniques such as collage, as well as sewing with needle and thread, we will re-assemble and create new versions combining our past histories and current lives in one completed collage. We will be coming together through education and art practice, celebrating knowledge and ancestry, as organizations from the East and West side of Los Angeles work together to offer this fun and meaningful workshop on the morning of spooky Halloween!

This workshop was supported through a partnership with 18th Street Arts Center and the Armory Arts Center with the goal of enhancing each other's education programs and connecting the east and west sides of Los Angeles.

Suggested Material List:
- Copies of family photos, letters, recipes, childhood artwork, recent photos OR images from magazines, newspapers, old books, etc. / glue /needle and thread (optional)
