Pasadena based artist-run non profit SIDE STREET PROJECTS has released a pocket sized version of their woodworking bus (often spotted on LA’s FWYs). The mini woodworking bus was cartoonishly drafted by SFV painter Javier Ramirez who we kicked it with back in August. The Side Street Project’s woodworking buses bring artist-taught woodworking classes to all the 3rd graders in Pasadena Unified School District and schools across LA county. Kids can take woodworking classes at their Pasadena headquarters and the bus has been known to crash bday parties. They’ve also got a constant rotation of artist projects,  an equipment coop and a range of other artist services to get involved with.

Bang for your Burger Buck: The Village Kitchen – Filipinotown



The Village Kitchen: where getting bang for your burger buck also means doing the right thing. The Mayor may not be sitting on a stoop, bugging Mookie to do the right thing like he did on a certain, very hot day in Bed Stuy circa 1989; but he would agree that eating at Village Kitchen is supporting a worthy cause.

Veteran Workshop: “Combat Paper: Uniforms into Handmade Paper”
June 3-6 . 6:00-9:00 PM . Free for veterans and their familie

Combat Paper Workshop explores the experiences of military veterans in recent wars through printmaking. The project began in 2007 as a series of workshops by veteran Drew Cameron and artist Drew Matott as a way for returning soldiers to share experiences through art.  In the workshops veterans typically cut up their battle fatigues, beat them into pulp, and press the pulp into paper that is then used as a ground for printing.  The artist-veterans’ images reflect the intensity, conflicting emotions, and indelible memories of war.

Combat Paper Project: Uniforms into Handmade Paper

June 3 – 6, 2012

6:00 – 9:00 PM

For five years Combat Paper has used the traditional hand papermaking process to facilitate inter-generational workshops with veterans, family, and members of the community. The uniforms that were once worn in service are transformed into handmade paper, prints and artwork. In this way, there is a shared understanding, dialogue and commemoration between veterans and the communities in which they live. This hands-on workshop will teach the entire process of how to transform your own clothing into paper art.

Participants are encouraged to bring in items of clothing or fabric, including military uniforms, which they would like to transform into paper. The instructor, artist Drew Cameron, will also provide fibers so bringing material is not a requirement to attend. In addition, any photographs, letters or materials from their service may also be brought along for inspiration.

This workshop is FREE for veterans and their families.
