Bruins Give Back

Latona Elementary School Mural

Yesterday I had the opportunity to paint a butterfly mural at Latona Elementary School in Los Angeles. This was part of the UCLA Volunteer day mural project. I love working on this project, I got a busload of kids from the 2016 UCLA Freshman class to help paint. This is a great way for the Bruins to give back to the community and it’s so much fun.

2015 UCLA Volunteer Day

Last Saturday UCLA held it’s annual UCLA Volunteer Day throughout Los Angeles. I was lucky enough to participate at the Second Street Elementary School site. I got to work with the 2015-16 UCLA Freshman class in the mural project and these are some of the pictures from the event.
