In this painting class, instructor Alex Gallardo led some students in a step-by-step exercise, while others worked on individual projects. The students are eager to get to work during this relatively short class, so they are purposeful when they file in, sign the attendance roster, and collect brushes and paints from Alex.

This class is sponsored by the Arts Council of Kern, and is part of California's Arts in Corrections program. Funding for the photography was provided by the California Arts Council.
