Guest Speaker Series – Irwin Jaeger


Investing in the future of children

In a second story loft on Skid Row, business manager Irwin Jaeger co-founded what has become one on the country’s leading community centers for learning, Inner-City Arts. ICA is now an expansive complex that annually serves over 100,000 students throughout Los Angeles.

Irwin Jaeger describes his philosophy by a single word – perseverance. He will tell us how he started and nurtures Inner-City Arts, and share his drive for developing the creative ability in all children to build their self-esteem and enhance their quality of life.

Relax & Craft: April 2016

Wire Sculptures

Armed with a coil of wire and a turning tool, see what you can create with a few twists of your wrists. We will provide some simple shapes to copy, like this bird pictured, or you can come up with your own design. After you’ve created your wire shape, we’ll show you ways to dress it up with fabric, paper and beads. We’ll have lots of samples and inspiration. No advanced registration required, just show up!
