Who We Are

We are teachers, visual artists, writers, scholars, and activists focused on building educational settings that are available to everyone interested in creative growth. We feel we are as strong as the link between teaching moments across generations.

In Why I Write. Why I Create, one generation teaches the next how to have courage to show what it takes to deliver truths through art.
