Design Your Own Dream Space, A Virtual Community Art Class in Partnership with L.A. GOAL
May 1, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
On Saturday, May 1st from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, we are partnering with L.A. GOAL and artist Dani Samson of Calico Flower Studio to bring you a virtual mixed media workshop.
In this workshop, participants will design their own 2-dimensional dream space – for example, a home, a room, a garden – through a mixed media approach. Dani will walk you through creative prompts to help ease the flow of ideas. Dani will demonstrate by creating her own dream space, but the specific design will ultimately be up to each participant.
Grab your family, a friend, or an artist in your life and join the fun! This class is intended to be enjoyable, joyful, and inspirational. A time to explore your creativity, connect with a creative community, and decompress from the stresses of everyday life. No experience necessary.
***Please be punctual! Once Dani begins class, she will not be repeating instructions for late-comers.***
ABOUT DANI SAMPSON
Dani Michaux Samson is a scrappy mixed media collage artist. She loves to collect residual material from her art and her day-to-day so that she may give it new life in her collages. Her creative practice stems from thoughts about her living space, the sanctuary that she calls home. Naturally, her cat is one of her muses and her number one studio assistant. Born and raised in Ohio, Dani received her MFA degree from Columbus College of Art & Design just before moving to Los Angeles in 2019. In L.A., she established her business, Calico Flower Studio, where her independent artwork can be viewed and purchased online. In the past, she has facilitated art activities with organizations such as Goodwill Columbus Art Studio & Gallery, Kya’s Krusade, Paint Nite, and Columbus Museum of Art. Her range of experience has allowed her to work with people of various ages and abilities. Currently, Dani brings art into the lives of LAUSD middle schoolers in the Team Prime Time After School Program. Throughout her career, she has maintained the belief that everyone has creative potential. Dani is so excited to meet the Helms Bakery/L.A. GOAL community!
