“The Los Angeles Art Group is a place for Artists and Art lovers to come together in a community that encourages each other to achieve our artistic goals, by visiting museums and shows, having outings and workshops, sharing work, discussing techniques, and offering positive critiques. The LAAG will be a great place to grow and to meet interesting people.”
“An eclectic, group of fun loving people that when we get together the good times start immediately. There is something in the ethers with this hiking club. We just raise the level by being together and the laughter, humor and jokes pervade the experience. Exercise is a great way to raise the spirit, and keep the body healthy. Everyone is welcome. If you don’t have a good time, you must be dead.”
If you are looking for something fun and interesting to do, check out Flash Mob America. A flash mob according to wiki is “a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then disperse.” What a way to have a good time and meet people too.
