The ARTree Community Arts Center

Developing the Roots of Creativity


ARTree hosts various events throughout the year. Our most regular event is Art Walk, which we do every month. Some of our recurring events include:


Guest Speaker Series: Allan Trautman



Allan Trautman
Puppeteer & Actor,
The Jim Henson Company

No Strings Attached

It’s not easy being green, and also not easy to make green, hairy, big, toothy, funny and scary puppets move. Allan Trautman has been making puppets move while moving us to laughter – and sometimes tears – as one of the many talented puppeteers at The Jim Henson Company.

This Emmy-nominated actor, director, and master puppeteer will show us how these characters are brought to life at our next meeting. It is not a puppet show for kids, but a presentation for the kid in all of us.

Thursday – May 26, 2016 – 6:30pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library


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.

Thursday, April 28, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library
