ABOUT ART Inside/Out
ART Inside/Out wishes to create a safe space within the walls of an institution where individuals may grow artistically, intelligently, emotionally, and spiritually through art making.
ART Inside/Out Philosophy
“Art enables us to find ourselves and love ourselves at the same time.” –Thomas Merton
“Creativity takes courage.” Henri Matisse
I truly believe that once a person feels like they have a purpose in life, they become better human beings. We all can grow and art has a way of showing us our strengths and out weaknesses. Those who may feel lost can be grounded by making art and in return have a sense of direction in their lives.
ART Inside/Out will market to any institutions that houses some of the millions of incarcerated individuals and who wish to provide an art therapeutic program for their population.
