ExtraOrdinary Art Show, Student Counsel,Spring Concert Times

ExtraOrdinary Art Show is on May 18th

Dear Parents,

ExtraOrdinary, the second annual pop-up art show and sale is almost here! Wednesday at Voila! studio (518 N. La Brea) from 4-8 pm. We've had lots of questions about the kids' artwork and the amazing class posters. Iva Werner, an awesome 3rd grade mom, took photos of every class for this year's show and we are so grateful! They turned out amazing! They will ALL be showcased at the event on Wednesday. You will be able to order and pay for them on the night ($20 for a 12x18 poster) and then they'll be delivered to you at school once we've had them all printed up. And, if you're not able to make the show, don't worry! We're giving a poster to every teacher as a gift (so you can check them out!), and you'll still be able to order after the fact. Info will go out about how to order after the 18th.

The other art that the kids did, is the "I Am..." project. Every child created a 7x9 piece of art, writing about who they are. These will all be displayed in a giant installation on Wednesday. After the show, every child will get their art back. Cards of their work will be available for sale at the event (10 cards for $20), and we'll also make sure these are available to order after the show as well. The cards are YOUR CHILD only, and their name will be on the back with the year.

IMPORTANT: our valet parking stand has moved slightly. It is no longer behind the gallery in the alley, it is on Rosewood (east side of La Brea), south of the gallery. We will have a sign up, so hopefully it will be clear. And, uber is also great! All art purchased that night (less the kids' posters and cards) will go home with the buyer that evening. Free drinks, food, art and community! What could be better?

If you have questions, please email Rachel Quaintance at or Jennifer Tamez at
