‘From Streets to Studio’ Brings New Perspective to Art


Advocacy program coaxes teens to express themselves through art. Opening reception at Antioch University today.


An artists reception Thursday evening will mark the opening of "From Streets to Studio," an exhibit of artwork emerging from participants of the Project Renaissance teen advocacy program. Antioch University, the show’s sponsor, will host the reception, and the work will be on display at the school throughout April.

Project Renaissance promotes positive self-expression and exploration through art. It provides a studio situation and mentorship in creative arts — painting, sculpture, ceramics, music, filmmaking and theater — in a group setting. The program encourages young people to address societal issues through their creativity as well as dialogue and group activities.

The teen artists also participate in leadership training workshops, educational symposiums with Antioch, neighborhood murals, field trips, community parties and other events.

The public is invited to meet these young artists and view their work at a special reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Antioch University, 801 Garden St.

Click here for more information or call Project Renaissance director Angela Kelly or artist in residence Carlos Cuellar at 805.541.7835.

Kathy Kramer is communications coordinator at Antioch University.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
