Artists from around the country who took their time served in federal prison facilities to develop their current careers as working artists will work with 8th-12thgraders in Lexington, Kentucky for an intensive visual art program during spring break. Since becoming returning citizens over the past few years, these artists work within communities and potential "at-risk” demographics to provide intensive visual art instruction and instill the concept that young people can make progressive, productive choices about their futures that do not have to end in incarceration.
Through a daily intensive program, students will learn and practice various visual art forms including painting, decoupage, and transfers, to culminate in a group show at the end of the week. Students will also go on one field trip to a local gallery as well as meet local artists so they may learn more about the visual arts opportunities in their own community.
