NYC///GOTHAM’S BEAUTIFUL LOSERS “MAKE SOMETHING!” WORKSHOPS WRAP UP WITH ERIC WHITE AND JESSE LEYVA
The BEAUTIFUL LOSERS x NIKE SPORTSWEAR official "Make Something!" creative workshop series designed to provide cutting-edge art instruction to disadvantaged urban youth in conjunction with the "Beautiful Losers" international film debut wrapped up its month long run in NYC last weekend with two blowout four-hour seminars: Painting with ERIC WHITE, and sneaker design with JESSE LEYVA. Schooling a diverse array of young urban students on the finer points of putting brush to canvas, Mr White distilled his years of fine art experience into a powerful tutorial that sent the students home with a greatly enhanced skill set and newfound desire to create art with a tool other than a spray paint can. Meanwhile, Nike's own resident footwear magician Jesse Leyva guided a full house of dedicated young sneakerheads through the finer points of staying fresh-to-death on the blank canvas of a pair of all-white AF1s. Currently, the West Coast "Make Something!" workshop series has just gotten underway in San Francisco and Los Angeles with classes running through early September led by a diverse array of artists including ED TEMPLETON, MISTER CARTOON, GEOFF McFETRIDGE, CLARE ROJAS, ANDREW JEFFREY WRIGHT, and THOMAS CAMPBELL, among others.
