This gallery documents a variety of art classes in California state prisons. Most of them are part of Arts in Corrections, which is funded by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and administered by the California Arts Council. For a history and details of this program, see the book I published with Larry Brewster, Paths of Discovery: Art Practice and Its Impact in California Prisons (2nd edition).
A few of the classes seen here are not part of Arts in Corrections; these are indicated by the description on the thumbnail page.
Tip: Folders are in reverse chronological order—newest ones on top. An easy way to locate an older shoot is with a browser search of folder titles—just press command-F (for pc, control-F) then enter your search term.
