artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond Winter Paintings Part of the Annual Holiday Card Project


Spectrum Detention Unit, Dorchester, MA

Each year youth artists from Artistic Noise Boston programs collaborate with youth artists from Artistic Noise New York programs to create a unique set of holiday cards featuring their artwork. The cards are sold on-line and at other local venues. All profits from the card sales support our youth artist stipends and Artistic Noise programs. Through this process, youth participants explore different painting and transfer techniques to make winter-themed paintings.

Teaching Artists: Vanessa Ruiz and Minotte Romulus
The paintings shown here are by the following youth participants, in order: Dani, ShaAsia, Quasaia, Shana
