"If children are told stories that reflect their experiences, they will grow up believing in themselves and become the authors and illustrators of the future"
BLOCK PRINTING WORKSHOPS
Led by our Resident Print Artist, Eddi Ortiz, our monthly Block Printing Workshops are FREE to the community. Supplies are provided by the Foundation and everyone gets to leave with their own work. Block Printing is perfect for greeting cards, t-shirts, stamps and a launch for creative writing and book making.
Workshops are select Sundays from 1-4pm:
COMMUNITY OPEN MIC
Music, Poetry, Stand Up, Spoken Word, and More!
An Interactive Art Piece
EL SERENO LAND
“El Sereno Land” creates a playful and fun opportunity for the community to create and write short stories based on “open-ended” images. Access to these images will be through various social media portals. This project is being sponsored by the Holy Grounds Arts & Literacy Foundation, in collaboration with a local photography studio, The Artery. Together, the foundation staged a small number of possible vignettes using toy action figures as props utilizing the “Welcome to El Sereno” monument located within the traffic median on Huntington Drive in El Sereno.
