St Elmo Village Summer fun!

We are celebrating our 47th year of creative community enrichment with a Village Art Exhibit and Sale featuring artists who live at the Village as well as artists who create work at our
workshops.

The show will encompass painting, ceramic, photography,
assemblage art and more by emerging and established artists from Los Angeles and beyond, coming together in the spirit of creativity and human experience. We invite you to join us for the reception!

Where: St. Elmo Village // 4830 St. Elmo Dr. in Mid-City, LA
When: Sunday, July 10, 2016 from 2 pm to 5 pm

The exhibit will run through August 5, 2016, followed by our annual Summer Children’s Art Exhibit on Saturday, August 13, 2016.

Our crowdfunding campaign has garnered $2,285 towards updating computers to teach youth tech-related skills and developing new art and educational programs. We still need your support in keeping the Arts accessible to all people so that they can, in turn, go out into the world as happier, more whole and creative individuals. If you have visited the Village or taken part in its workshops, you understand the importance of art-making as a creative and personal outlet for self-expression. We are asking those who have the means to support the Arts by making a contribution through Crowdrise or sending a check payable to St. Elmo Village. Thank you in advance for your support.

We hope to see you this summer.

In gratitude,
St. Elmo Village

Meet Our 2016 Getty Muticultural Undergraduate Intern Tiana Chanaiwa

Tiana is new to the St. Elmo Village family of Interns. She currently
attends Pomona College in Claremont with a major in Anthropology and a minor in Spanish.

Tiana brings to the Village experience working with diverse communities through her work with Pomona College Academy for Youth Success in Claremont, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Community Arts Partnership Summer Academy, and several other wonderful organizations serving the youth, environment and community.

We know Tiana will fit right in with St. Elmo Village, and we are very excited to have her with us this summer.
