I am honored to be one of only two teaching artists in the AIC Program in California, to be trained and hired as a Lead Artist. The program is active in some 30 prisons around the state, currently. It employs artists as mentors to hundreds of incarcerated people, in the areas of the visual arts, music, creative writing, theatre arts, and more: William James Association
To see wonderful photos by Peter Merts, who documents the AiC Program for WJA around California, visit his Prison Art galleries here: www.petermerts.com
Peter also has a link to purchase "Paths of Discovery", a beautiful book that includes many photos of artist's work, and commentary by Dr. Brewster of the University of San Francisco who has contributed significant research.
