I started Revolutionary Artists in 2018. What started as a fun passion project to do art with kids and talk about social issues planted its' roots deep within me and opened my eyes to something much more meaningful. I learned a few things from our first year. First, you can learn something from anyone, regardless of age or background. Second, art has incredibly powerful healing properties. And finally, healing is a universal demand that does not miss anyone. Not even me. Having learned these lessons from our kids made me dive deep into an exploration of what healing looks like to me. Revolutionary Artists has taught me the importance of remaining a lifelong student, staying curious and open in order to remain in constant growth. It's also taught me to value creativity as a means of expression and healing. Yes, we still do art and talk about social issues with youth (and now adults too), but we've grown to acknowledge and honor the importance of community healing and put an end to passing generational trauma. We're here to plant seeds for healing in underserved communities in hopes that those roots never stop growing.
