This weekend there are a ton of things happening in the Coachella Valley, especially in Palm Springs.  

For starters, there is the Palm Springs International Film Festival!  That, as we all know, is a star-studded event.  Full of celebrities, fans of celebrities, pre-parties, after parties, red carpets, sold out shows, and film debuts. 

 There are many events happening that are spawns of the Film Fest, all of which are very cool and film related – however, there are a fffeeewwww other events in town that have little-to-nothing to do with the festival for all those looking for a sweet escape.

School Night & Ace Hotel’s Summer School / Winter Weekender is our pick of choice this weekend.

We love this event because it’s perfect for all those who may be getting a little antsy after surviving multiple movie screenings in a row (I know I’m guilty of that).  

We also love that this event is open to EVERYONE and is ALL AGES!  Plus, you get to hang out and do cool art projects with rad artists.  And, on top of all that, listen to good music by the pool.  Now, that’s what I call #PalmSpringsLivin.

We can’t wait!  If you’re gonna come, hit us up on Twitter and/or Instagram (@thecvartscene) and let us know!  We’ll meet you there and maybe buy you a drink.  😉

One of the ART WORKSHOPS that we love is

Not only did we just discover that we (were already) a fan of Dan… but, as you know, we are all about all things DIY, and zines are definitely in that category.  So, win-win.

However, take it up a few notches by doing zines WITH Dan Monick…and we are now in image-creating-heaven!

*We are particularly looking forward to the types of images that Dan will be bringing to the table (hopefully some of his own?!).

If you are a fan of photography, zines, and/or just cool shit in general – be there.
