Art in the LA Streets

Its hard not to be inspired by so much amazing art on the streets of Los Angeles. Some of the world's best either have made their way through LA or call the city home. Here is just a small sample of what the streets of Los Angeles have to offer.

Homeschool x 31: EDSA

Just a quick one for the fourth class from the EDSA location where 15 families make their homes under massive billboards with shacks for shelter. The kids were amazing and the parents were very helpful. Thank you to everyone who helped out for this class!

Thanks to the Office of Culture and Design and to Bonifacio Art Fund for flying me out to Manila and for all of the support for the 5 classes we taught during the week. 

T.V. crews came out to capture the event and interview the parents, kids and volunteers.

Huge shot out to the mothers for all their help!
