Pages of Florencio Zavala's sketchbook — Flo's teaching an illustration workshop this weekend at Summer School starting today, our semi-biannual art-making-while-imbibing situation at Ace Palm Springs. School Night Los Angeles is bringing down a bunch of great people to give workshops by the pool. All of this is going down during AfterFest, our concomitant nightly fête running throughout the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Making things is really fun, and so is watching things — it all begins this evening. Let us join together in holy lounging.

Summer School has returned — this weekend we have the amazing Chris Johanson teaching a percussion workshop, Johanna Jackson leading an abstract expressionism cake decorating session, Abby Portner (set designer for Animal Collective) making puppets, and Brian Roettinger leading the class in hand-lettering and zine-making. You can do all this drunk, sober or high on life in the Clubhouse next to the pool — and you’ll leave with your very own art. The cake — you will probably want to eat that before you go. Unless you get truly abstract and it becomes inedible.
As always, Matt and Chris of School Night LA are bringing rad bands and DJs to the pool and the Amigo Room all weekend including The Miracals, Chasing Kings, American Royalty, Good Night Keaton and Justin Cornwall.
Rooms are on the cheap, and all workshops are free for guests and Swim Club members and day pass holders. Last year was a truly incredible experience, and we’re so excited to be back in the poolside-art-making-saddle once again.

We’re super excited about Summer School — a big design, music and art workshop weekend we’re throwing on July 23 & 24 at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. You can spend all weekend making art, learning to screenprint and blockprint, and letterpressing your $&%@ing heart out, for free. A handful of artists we admire from LA and Southern California are coming into town to set up camp in the Clubhouse for two afternoons full of workshops, and the Type Truck — a touring mobile letterpress installed in the back of a 1982 Chevy van — will be parked by the lobby all weekend. $1/Minute will be doing interactive speed design on Saturday afternoon and donating all proceeds to Adbusters.
School Night Los Angeles is curating bands and DJs by the pool and in the Amigo Room, and we’re finishing up Sunday night with a pop-up shop and gallery, Show & Tell, where we’ll be showcasing the art you’ve been making all weekend and some prints by visiting artists. Rooms are 10% off with rate code SCHOOLNIGHT, and we’ve got drink specials and 15% off on some of our favorite treatments at the Feel Good Spa all weekend, too.
See the calendar for more info — we’ll see you by the pool next weekend with ink-stained fingertips and an adult chocolate milk.
Keep an eye out for artist interviews over the next week or so, and learn more about your teachers.
