Room 13 creative studios are bustling with young artists at John Muir High School in Pasadena, Eliot Middle School in Altadena and Foshay Learning Center in South Los Angeles. The initiative is part of an international network of 93 student-run studios begun in 1994 in Coal, Scotland. Over the past several years, Light Bringer Project launched these first studios in America in our own community. Each Room 13 operates in its own independent space located on the school campus, and utilizes an Artist-in-Residence who supports the students’ creative expression, technical know-how and personal and creative growth. Each studio creates a business model to help sustain the studio practice by providing for some of the arts and non-arts materials, special projects and activities.
