Artworks for Milwaukee unveils the completed art work of our Apprentice Artists created in the two Fall 2010 programs: “Positive Influence Project” and “Safe Place Mural”.

Under the guidance of Lead Artist Kasia Drake-Hames, the “Positive Influence Project” give accolades to Milwaukee residents who make a difference in our communities.

The “Safe Place Mural” Program with Lead Artist Katie Van Velzer, creates powerful anti-gun/gang/drug messages by youth, for youth through stunning arrays of color and mixed media.

Artworks for Milwaukee is a 501(c)3 nonprofit which prepares underserved teens to enter Milwaukee’s workforce by utilizing the arts as a method to teach employability skills.

Support our youth, meet the artists and view their work on January 21, 2011 from 5-8pm at Artworks for Milwaukee (706 S. 5th Street).
