Our Volunteers

Hilda serves as our fierce leader and director. She has been volunteering at the jail since 2017 organizing classes and teaching men's and women's art. 


“I have greatly enjoyed exploring my own creativity alongside these women and men. There is a huge amount of talent here and I feel that I benefit from classes as much or more than the participants. Class members are open and willing to try whatever crazy project we bring to the table!”
