LA///BEAUTIFUL LOSERS “MAKE SOMETHING!” WORKSHOPS FEATURING AARON ROSE, MONEY MARK, JESSE SPEARS, ED TEMPLETON, JESSE LEYVA, MIKE MILLS, AND KEITH SCHARWATH
Celebrating the global release of the new “Beautiful Losers” documentary movie, head loser AARON ROSE, in conjunction with NIKE SPORTSWEAR has organized a series of over 30 artist-led “Make Something!” workshops in Tokyo, NYC, San Francisco, and LA. Designed to bring street-level art instruction to disadvantaged urban youth, the roster of instructors includes such youth culture art heroes as Mike Mills, KAWS, Ed Templeton, Eric Elms, Mister Cartoon, Todd James (REAS), Tommy Guerrero, and Geoff McFetridge, to name a few. To date, the NYC program has wrapped up and we're deep in the cut with inspiring sessions in LA at the MONTALBAN THEATER (where the black & white Geoff McFetridge designed wallpaper has become a de facto coloring book) including Zine Making with Aaron Rose, Film Score with Money Mark, Pom Poms with Jesse Spears, Skate Graphics with Ed Templeton, Sneaker Design with Jesse Leyva, Drawing with Mike Mills, and Movie Posters with Keith Scharwath. More sessions will continue through the fall with highlights including Design with Paul Mittleman, and Tattooing with Mister Cartoon. Meanwhile, PEEP THE RECAP:MAKE SOMETHING!
