Past Labs - Summer 2017

This summer, The Lab is thrilled to announce an inspiring summer lab program for kids, age 6 and up to explore art making, filmmaking and acting. 

FILMMAKING WEEK: We will make a collective film, shot on an iPhone and edited using the iMovie app. We start the week with a roundtable discussion of genre and style. Then we work on Screenwriting craft and write a script. From there we cast the film, location scout, produce, direct, shoot and edit and on Friday we screen and send it to parents! Kids will learn all the various roles that go into filmmaking and work as a collective to make a unified vision.

Hours: 9 am - 2 pm

Cost: $60 / day

Extended care available at $10/hour
Please pack a lunch and snacks. 

ART WEEK: A studio art style workshop designed to inspire and ignite creativity and self expression. It's an opportunity to explore, play, grow, get messy and create. A unique, immersive art experience with one goal: creativity and fun through art-expression of all kinds. This is all about process. There is no pressure to perform or perfect. The only requirement is to have fun. There will be crafts and projects to choose from and also weekly themes.

ACTING WEEK: This will be a week dedicated to the art of acting. We will work on creating our own personal monologues, read plays, screenplays, our favorite television shows, do scene work, and improv games. We will film performances and perform on Friday for the parents. This is a kid directed week and we will flow with the level of the group.

MULTI MEDIA WEEK: This is a combination week of all the above. It's a mix and match kid directed week with one goal - endless child directed creativity, exploration and fun. 


For adults, The Lab has offered workshops to all levels of aspiring creatives. It is a place to commune with our inner-artists, makers and be-ers. The Lab is facilitated by Emily Wagner and an exciting rotation of Los Angeles' most interesting trans-discipline artists, teachers, healers and thinkers. Expect a warm, inviting creative space to open, play, grow, explore, learn. Prices vary and include all materials and light snacks.
