Testimonials

"I love going to teen studio night because it gives me space to work on my art while surrounded by a supportive and kind community that always makes me feel loved. It truly feels like one of the best places in this city." - Ellery, Teen Studio Night participant

"Working at ASLD has taught me the important role that art has to make changes for the good of the community, in my case the immigrant and Latino community. I love the freedom that I have as an artist and educator at ASLD to introduce, in my case, my art style and expertise in the Performance Art field and expressive art and how the staff at ASLD appreciate who I am as an immigrant and Latina artist." - Adriana Rondón-Rivero, ASLD Faculty

"ASLD is an amazing organization. They work tirelessly to bring beauty and art into our world especially at a time when the world is seeing the ugly side of a pandemic. They expand and cultivate the art community by providing a space for diversity, equity and inclusion, which I love. It is because of this, that they will always be a champion in the art community. They are an exhaustible resource of ultimate creativity." - Benu Amun-Ra, Student

"It was a fun way to connect with my creative side. It was stress-free and a great way to feel more like a human and less like an inmate." - Art in Prison Workshop Participant

"ASLD has allowed me to explore art in many different ways. Not only has it taught me to draw and paint, it has given me the opportunity to grow at my own pace. It has allowed me to have access to incredible artists on an ongoing basis to learn from them and get mentorship from them. ASLD has given me the space to decide how deeply I want to go as an artist." - Kenneth Brewer, Student & Board Member

"ASLD continues to be such a wellspring of artistic expression and learning for the whole community.  In particular, ASLD has continued to support my endeavors and offer me a chance to thrive through the interaction with other fabulous artists.  I appreciate all that the organization does and the future directions it is headed." - Bruce Zander, ASLD Donor

"I have received a great deal personally being a member at ASLD. As a result of my experience as a student, and a Life-Long Board member, I feel responsible for making sure this community gem survives so others can be as enriched by the gift of art as I have been." - Connie McArthur, Student & Lifetime Board Member
