This collaborative, mulit-media course by the Prison Arts Collective was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Instructors for this class were John Rodriguez, Sophie Vradelis, and Annie Buckley.
Masks were required for everyone attending this class, but we did recieve permission to make unmasked portraits in a separate room, where the student was very briefly unmasked. To see these portraits, scroll to the bottom of the thumbnails.
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.
