Art is Good for You Series: Levi Ponce Workshop

Zoom

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Levi Ponce has been painting murals since childhood. Using lessons from both his original teacher, his father, as well as the lessons he learned while earning his B.A. in fine art, Levi sees his walls as so much more than paint. Inspired by the city he grew up in, he sees each piece as a community project designed to bring together other artists, organizations, and even the passersby as stakeholders. Together, they transform the neighborhoods where they are found, shining light on inspiring people important to the community, as well as relevant issues. Visit the LAVC Art Gallery to obtain the Zoom link.
