Build an ocean tile by tile in a workshop with ceramic artist Alexis Slickelman. Participants will paint hand cut tiles with a variety of green and blue glazes that will be provided by the artist. Harness the power of making and collaborating with the community to create enough tiles for an 8’ x 10’ mural, representative of both the diversity of the San Pedro community and the uniting force of the Port. During the workshop, share your ocean and San Pedro stories with other participants and the artist. Alexis Slickelman will install the ceramic panels of undulating tiles in the AGCC gallery to be showcased in Bridging San Pedro opening in January 2020.

Bridging San Pedro: Visual Literacy as Community Practice is focused on the development of visual literacy in San Pedro community members through hands on making and deep listening exercises. Four artists with singular, but intersecting, art projects will work at Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) to foster a greater awareness and association between the Port of Los Angeles, life in San Pedro and art as a daily lived experience. Each artist will lead free workshops during which members of the community will create elements that will be used to compose the final art piece. These projects will culminate in an exhibition, curated by jill moniz, in the AGCC galleries during the first quarter of 2020.
