About ROOM 13 LA:
Room 13 LA is a student managed and financed, multi-media studio at James A. Foshay Learning Center, a public school in South Central Los Angeles. 170+ student artists (ages 10-18) share the studio with a professional fine artist, Kathia Dungplata -hired as Artist-in-Residence by the students. The studio serves as an incubator for original, creative learning and problem solving; it is a place where professional artists can inspire and mentor young artists while at the same time getting re-energized by the young artists’ creativity. Room 13 is a successful model for art programs in this time of reduced funding. The Room 13 artists represent the Los Angeles of today – young, bold, expressive, inclusive, multi-racial, and creative. Room 13 LA is part of Room 13 International, which includes over 80 studios around the world.
