bringing arts into public housing

Art works! I've been blessed to work with at-risk kids in public housing over the past 10 years, and we've found funding for and launched art programs beginning in 2013. Today, several of those kids are now in college. The art classes inspired them to dream big.

The Art Academy was launched in 2013 and won a national award in 2014.

A project that is near to my heart: helping bring the visual arts into public housing for at-risk kids. It's inspiring to see these kids take off through all kinds of art classes.
