Jovenes Artistas: Mixed Media Self-Portraits

2nd Floor Hallway

The Jovenes Artistas collaborated with artists Jeff Huntington and Jimi Davies for 10 weeks. Students created portraits by using magazine clippings and paint. As a group, students created a piece featuring a world leader as a young child. This piece will be for sale and half of the proceeds will go to Jovenes Artistas.

Opening Reception:  Wednesday, May 14 | 6 pm

Jovenes Artistas is an after school arts program that gives youth facing adversity a safe environment for self expression, confidence and motivation to stay in school.  The program combines mentoring, arts experience and emotional support to allow students to express their personal stories in a creative way.   Every few weeks, at the end of an arts session, the students have the opportunity to participate in a gallery exhibit or reception of their artwork.  ​
