The John Paul DeJoria Arts & Crafts room is the only one of its kind in Los Angeles. Our program is known for inspiring the creative and entrepreneurial talents like those of its namesake John Paul DeJoria. VBGC Arts and Crafts Coordinator, Alex Venzor is among a list of notable Arts & Crafts coordinators. His technical skills and natural ability to teach youth are two of the reasons his classes are always full.
There are also opportunities to take classes in sketching, and other forms of art in a full range of media (paper, plastic, canvas, wood, string, plaster, leather, paint, etc.) with activities designed for different age levels and interests.
Other projects include: plastics, furniture repair, model building, jewelry making, school projects, mask making, pine wood derby racing, special monthly projects, small two-day projects, shop safety education, and much more! Our staff members work with our members and help them create lifetime masterpieces!
The Variety Boys & Girls Club (VBGC) is a safe environment for kids (ages 5 to 17 yrs.) and propels them to learn social skills, identify potential opportunities, as well as achieve personal, academic, athletic and other worthy goals.
