The Getty's Drawing Hour happens two Sundays a month, and today happens to be one of them! From 3:30-5:30 p.m. you can take part in a free guided drawing session for aspiring artists of all skill levels. It's an informal 2-hour class that uses the Getty's art as inspiration for discussion, and, of course, drawing. The activity is free and open to 45 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up on the day of the session beginning at 2:30 p.m. at the Information Desk in the Museum Entrance Hall. Bring a drawing pad up to 24" x 36" and pencils.

This afternoon at 3 at REDCAT is the closing performance of the LA debut of Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes: Monsters and Prodigies: The History of the Castrati. It's described as a "raucous farce" that "reaches back to a florid chapter of European cultural history: the era of the castrati--superstars of 18th-century opera whose heavenly prepubescent voices won swooning adoration across the continent's highest courts" that's "delivered with off-the-wall humor and terrific musical aplomb."
