Three years ago I began working with a non-profit called Inverted Arts ( www.invertedarts.org)
The organization as a whole is young, but doing incredible work both locally, in Minneapolis & globally (Mexico, Dominican Republic, Kenya, etc.) . Their goal is to empower youth to tell their story through art.
I have had the opportunity to teach photography, printmaking, and drawing in a variety of formats, and will be continuing to increase my work with Inverted Arts in this upcoming year.
In February I will follow up with the program I was able to start in Mexico, and work to help them generate a business to sell the work they have been creating. The hope is the money they make will allow the youth to go to university.
