For weeks a team of UASRA officers and volunteers residents worked to put together the VIRTUAL SPRING COMMUNITY ART FESTIVAL.
I need to thanks our amazing committee formed by the unit reps: Sufia Sadaf, our neighbors Aparamita Pandey and Amrita Pal, our garden coordinator Steve Lu and our website coordinator: Gilberto Cardenas. They did committed and incredible work! Thank you!!!
Also to all the neighbors and UASRA officers helping to make decorations, flyering, teaching classes, delivering supplies, participating. BIG THANKS! My favorite class was a "kid teach to kid" workshop, led by our lovely neighbors Brianna and Nova.
Thank you so much to our local artists for giving us their time and talents. Thanks, Joshua, Carmen, and Amrita for accepting our invitation to have a community conversation about your artwork. The videos are available on our website and will be there all summer.
Maybe you saw the QR codes with the clues on the playgrounds! Gilberto organized an enjoyable Family Scavenger Hunt on the Univerity Village's both sides. The winners were contacted via email (if you submitted your answers, please check your email!)
Last but not least, we need thank to Tara Burns from the Hammer Museum for her support. The museum staff hosted an amazing “Artmaking Class” just for the kids in our community.
We had a last activity pending and we are doing it now: Painting the Little Library for Sepulveda thanks Sepulveda C unit Rep Zack Brown. Let us know if you are interested in participating here http://bit.ly/UASRALibrary.

We had classes for all ages and all tastes.
The workshops were free and some materials were delivered before the activities.
