From 2015 to 2017 I worked as a Teaching Artist for Urban Artworks, a non profit based in Seattle, Wa that works with youth in the area. The goal of Urban Artworks is to help youth gain job experience and create works of art they can be proud of in and around the city. My role was that of teacher and mentor. Not just teaching them how to paint and think creatively but also how to act in a positive and healthy way within their community. You can see more of Urban Artworks ongoing projects via their website. I continue to work with the youth and different communities whenever the opportunity is available.
