Meet the Students and their UCLA Mentors of the Collaborative Portrait Workshop

During Week 4 of the Collaborative Portrait Workshop at the Judy Baca Arts Academy, we took portraits of  the participating 6th grade students with their UCLA mentors!  Take a look at this gallery to see the developments~

About This Workshop: As part of Judy’s pedagogy, UCLA students of the Beyond the Mexican Mural class are empowered to join her in teaching the Collaborative Portrait Workshop to students of the Judy Baca Arts Academy. This multi-week workshop provides teaching experience for UCLA students and an opportunity for Judy Baca Arts Academy students to reflect upon and self-express his and her own distinctive identity.  The first two weeks are devoted to talking and developing imagery to express the student’s identity.  The third and fourth weeks are for painting!
