“Visiting Artist Program Instructs and Inspires. One of our participant artists said what he most appreciated about the Piece by Piece program was the access to education that he and others would not normally have. Our free workshops to residents of South Los Angeles and the Skid Row area fill up fast with participants eager to learn. When a Visiting Artist is scheduled, there is often standing room only. Our participants come together in these workshops to not only to develop their skills, but hear how professional artists work, think, and build their successes.
Many schools and universities have visiting artist programs for good reason: It provides the opportunity for students to hear from established and emerging individuals in their specific vocation. At Piece by Piece, the visiting artist program becomes especially meaningful to our participants, who have little to no contact with the professional artist world. By sharing their experiences and special techniques, visiting artists to Piece by Piece help our participants gain self-confidence and embrace the power of knowledge.”
