Piece by Piece will lead community workshops engaging Legal Aid clients and staff from throughout LAFLA service areas in the design and making of mosaics for the new headquarters building. Our plan invites constituencies of LAFLA satellite offices as well as the community local to the new Headquarters in Pico Union to engage in fun, family-friendly art workshops suited to all ages and abilities. The workshops will provide input on designs for mosaic "Mandalas" to appear in both a large exterior mural and on Garden Pots adorning the building's rooftop garden.

Community "Design A Mandala" Workshops

Design workshops will focus on creating patterns and motifs on paper. Great fun for the entire family! Participants will be led in creating themed elements (such as animals and flowers) using stencils and other tools. Piece by Piece will use these creative works to prepare final designs for mosaics to be installed as a mural. See listing, below, for Workshop dates scheduled near LAFLA office locations East, West, South, Long Beach, Santa Monica and Pico Union.

Community "Mosaic Hands-On" Workshops

The community will also enjoy helping to create mosaics using tile and glass. Led by Piece by Piece instructors and Artisans, workshops offer creative fun for all ages and abilities. Help apply mosaic materials to create stunning community art for the LAFLA Mural and Patio Garden. Mosaics will be adhered to Garden Pots, enriching the patio with beautiful, colorful decor. Check Listing below for Workshop dates local to your community (May/June).
