Public art can create a sense of identity for a City. It becomes an integral part of living in the neighborhood instilling pride and a sense of belonging to all who live among the artistic creations. Public art can make an empty space seem like a significant place. It can inspire, ignite discussions and emotions, create memories or just become a place to be.

Art is important to a child’s life! We know that art education contributes significantly to improved critical thinking,problem posing and solving, and decision making. The arts develop a child’s imagination and judgement. Budget cuts and poor decision making have taken art out of our school system, so Hands on Art is an all Volunteer organization that teaches art in all Redondo Schools.

Reaching Out

9 years ago I created the Reaching out program that brings art, fun and creativity to Innercity elementary students. Along with 30 volunteers, we service 1500 students in Compton and Lennox. Hands on Art has become the joy during their academic school life, a place where they can explore their minds freely and let their creativity speak to us.
