#Ryman Arts in Los Angeles

Be sure to see Ryman Arts at Arts Day LA!

ArtsDay LA
Friday, April 11
12 pm – 1 pm
Location: LA Mall in Downtown Los Angeles

As part of this Friday’s ArtsDay LA, join us for a free drawing activity across the street from City Hall East at the LA Mall in downtown Los Angeles.

ArtsDay LA is an annual opportunity for Angelenos to celebrate the contributions of arts and culture to the community, and to talk with their elected officials about why the arts are important to us. Ryman Arts will be there showing our support for the arts!

Join Los Angeles artists from Ryman Arts, including Big Draw LA Coordinator, Justin McInteer, and teaching artist, Julie Weitz! Add your drawing to our giant ArtsDay LA Sketchbook to record your vision of Los Angeles. Then, make and decorate your own sketchbook to take home to continue drawing. Discover how drawing can help us see more, think creatively, expand our imaginations, communicate with others – and have fun together!
