Public Art Practice is a community service effort that seeks to liberate, encourage and affirm the creative spirit in all people.
I hosted 60 free art-making session + Open Studios between September 2019 and March 2020 at Deep Roots Market, and two art talk/community painting events @ the public library. In-person sessions are currently on hiatus, but I have continued to promote art + artists + creative expression via social media.
As an artist who continues to learn and grow as a person as I practice art-making, I believe all people fundamentally have a creative spirit which deserves nurturing and expression. Public Art Practice's mission is to:
liberate people's creative spirits
encourage creative expression and art-making out in the open, in everyday spaces
affirm everyone's ability to make beautiful, meaningful visual art
foster healthy, equitable communities
promote + support the artistic abilities of communities underrepresented in the arts
advocate for the value of the arts and art-making as central parts of individual and community care
