We are excited to share the news of a wonderful opportunity for you and your neighborhood. Perhaps you have noticed that all our parks in Pasadena have similar monuments (signs) with the name of the park and a wonderful collage of tiles made by neighborhood participants.

The City of Pasadena and The Armory Center for the Arts are collaborating on the creation of a monument for Viña Vieja Park and we need your help!

Come join your neighbors in creating a glorious park monument for Viña Vieja Park.  Please select one of the two workshops to attend.


Tile Workshop:

Saturday, February 11, 2006, 1-3 p.m.

@ Victory Park Community Center


Saturday, February 25, 2006, 10 – 12 p.m.

@Victory Park Community Center

This will be a delightful two hour project for your children and or you.  Participants will create their design, transfer it onto the tile, and glaze it. The Armory artist will lead participants through some very basic drawing exercises before they start on their design.  Each individual can create two tiles–one for the monument and one to take home.  Participants will leave their tiles and the artist will take them to be fired.  It will probably take two to three weeks to get them back.  Wear casual clothing; something you don’t mind soiling. Be prepared to have fun as you become a part of our newest park’s history.


Please call Rhonda Stone at 626.744.4740 to reserve a space for one of the two tile workshops.  If you are leaving a message please leave each participant’s name, a phone number, and indicate which workshop you would like to attend. There will be a cap of 20 for each workshop. Any and all messages will be returned.
