A program created to provide art curriculum to at-risk youth with dumpster diverted materials.

We are hosting an art contest at the hall, the ranch, and the girls center. The winners will receive gift certificates to Barnes and Noble and some cash prizes. I have been working hard to get these kids to submit their work. So many of them are so used to experiencing rejection , that they think it is better not to even try. There are some incredibly talented kids in this class. I have been encouraging them to do their best work, and to let me submit some of it to magazines for publication.
Some of the art will be featured at a gallery show at the Martinez Art Gallery in September. I don't have the date yet, but I will post it as soon as everything is finalized.
