ART INSIDE/OUT - 6-MONTH PROGRAM FOR THE WOMEN AT PATUXENT INSTITUTION!

ART Inside/Out provides amazing art opportunities to creative individuals behind bars. We are able to do so through donations from fellow art enthusiast, art supporters, & believers like you! Your contributions are greatly appreciated.

“Creativity takes courage.”-Henri Matisse
 
The women population at the Patuxent Institution in Jessup, Maryland will be starting their ART Inside/Out 6-month program & need your help. Any donation will help these creative ladies with obtaining the much needed supplies & it will help with visiting guests opportunities. We need funding to obtain books, sketchbooks, art supplies, pay for instructional time, & any training that would be necessary to better the program.
 
The ART Inside/Out project provides students with access to limited art supplies that are allowed in the institution. 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 has a way of showing us our strengths and our weaknesses. Those who may feel lost can be grounded by making art and in return gain a sense of direction in their lives.
 
ART Inside/Out will market to any institutions that house some of the thousands of incarcerated individuals and that wish to provide an art therapeutic program for their population.
 
“Art enables us to find ourselves and love ourselves at the same time."-Thomas Merton
