This Sunday’s ” Tips on Tips” workshop was a success! Vyal along with Make and Bash helped demonstrate the usage of every kind of tip/cap and explain the different varieties  of Montana paint. They also taught  techniques such as: highlights, shading and effects. Tip usage was also included on other brands of paint. Every body who attended got a promo pack filled with tips and stickers courtesy of Art Primo and Montana paint.  We got great feedback from everybody who attended they appreciated getting to learn or re-fresh on new tips and painting techniques.

Slanguage and Fin de Semana present ” Tips on Tips” workshop.

We want to thank Art Primo and Montana Colors for sponsoring our Slanguage artist workshop this coming Sunday, July 25, 2010 here at the Slanguage Studio.

With a new generation of paint and paint tips/caps it is essential for artists and graffiti writers to be able to utilize all the new types of supplies. This workshop is intended as a skill development for the established artist, and the new up and coming artist.

Los Angelels graffiti artitst Vyal will be demonstrating  techniques and tips on how to use every kind of tip/cap for Montana Colors and how to use it on other types of spray paint.

This is the first art performance of a series at Slanguage that explores sound, imagery, text, music and dance. Performance Sketches is an eclectic mix of original pieces by artists connected by its humor, poetic resonance and contextual, visual poignancy. Made within the same framework as an artist sketch, these performances brings together a unique portrait of San Antonio Texas, Wilmington, and Los Angeles.

Last month’s ” Pico Union Tour” was the first of a series of monthly walking tours we started doing here at Slangauge.  The concept behind this was to learn more of the facts and history about the city we grew up in. The days of stereotypical foreign ” tourists” are over! we as native Angelinos should be the first to know everything about our beautiful city. Unless you are a historian or history buff the average person might not necessary be aware of some of the history that surrounds us.  This past Sunday we did our Boyle Heights walking tour. We not only chose historical landmarks to explain but also added many other fun and interesting stops typical tours might not include.  Analilia Jimenez and myself were the guides for this tour it  consisted of 25 stops or mentions each with history and commentary. Karla Diaz and Erick Huerta also gave us stories and insider perspectives on certain locations.
