The Cool School Los Angeles : The Garden of Earthly Delights

Today, Saturday July 26th from 7 - 10pm The Cool School Los Angeles, in collaboration with Matters of Space, Kat and Roger of K&R Ceramics, Beth Katz of Mt. Washington Pottery, Jo Abellera of KKIBO, artist Nicola Vruwink, Karen Combs of Nama Rococo and many more Los Angeles based artists, will be hosting an inaugural art exhibition and design showcase. Included will be custom designed modern / minimalist furniture, hand-crafted macramé hanging planters, beautiful ceramic planter pots and original artworks.

Everything will be playing off an initial concept that Shannon & Janna of The Cool School Los Angeles had in partnership with Matters of Space: to create a relaxing, indoor nursery-plant environment with botanical furniture. It soon became a broader goal, beyond bringing in local creatives, by putting out a call for entries from the art, craft and design communities outside of their Glendale neighborhood in order to connect with Los Angeles at large.

To complement the show, there'll host botanical-centric, art workshops including Botanical Drawing – where you create your own bamboo reed pens and learn about ink /wash techniques while drawing from their in-house nursery.

And as a mother to two boys, I certainly appreciate that they teach really wonderful Summer Camps and Classes for kids.
