Shown here are Prison Arts Collective (PAC) peer facilitators at Chuckawala Valley State Prison. Peer facilitators are accomplished artists who have successfully completed the PAC Arts Facilitator Training course, based on the university model of art education. These men at CVSP are now teaching art to their peers; today they received a check-in visit from two members of PAC—founder Annie Buckley and mentor teacher Yvette Deas.
The class is part of Arts in Corrections (www.artsincorrections.org), which is funded by California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and administered by the California Arts Council.
