First year of Opening Doors; A New Understanding
Teens and young adults in Boston paint full size portraits of police officers, firemen, EMTs and veterans using doors instead of canvasses. Painting a portrait of another person encourages the artist to project his or her own experiences on to the subject of the painting. While creating a character with paint, the artist’s imagination expands. Skill clashes with ambition and time constraints, so Living Art students gain a fresh perspective on life and work.
