Join us this October as we participate in The Big Draw LA, a month-long series of intentional drawing experiences for children and families. This is a part of the larger international The Big Draw community where we all create and become inspired together.


In this all-ages workshop, artist Kristin Donner shares her favorite books about robotics, design, and creative recycling. Participants will combine this inspiration with their own personal style and create a one-of-a-kind Chalk-Bot with recycled cardboard boxes finished in chalkboard paint.  Using colored chalk participants will draw and personalize the Chalk-Bots they build.
