Urban Art Retreat to Conduct Ongoing Workshops

N. Lawndale residents who would like to participate in creating a quilt about the history of N. Lawndale African American people are welcome to register with URBAN ART RETREAT for a group workshop to create a very artistic quilt along with others in a group setting.

We will share African American History of N. Lawndale and you are welcome to bring info. about the neighborhood. Together we will create some artistic 6"X6" squares to become part of a larger quilt endeavor. Family trees, civil rights scenes, famous people who lived here, and familiar scenes from the neighborhood will be just some of the subject matter for the quilt pieces created at UAR for this community-wide historical project!

We will be working in mixed media. Adults can participate on Saturdays from 11-2p.m. 
and youth can participate as part of our Sat. youth program from 1-4 on Saturdays. No experience is needed. It is free to participate. And you can do something worthwhile and participate in your own community!  
If you have a group of youth or adults who would like to schedule a day/time at UAR just 
for your group to create quilt squares under the direction of an artist, please send your info. to our email address. 

To RSVP, please send an email to contact@urbanartretreat with your name & number, 
plus what day you plan to attend.
thank you, Dianna
