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.
