Art Studio Inc
September 24, 2010

I became affiliated with art studio as a museum educator from Miami art Museum. one year and a half, ago, Art Studio called MAM to schedule a filled trip for her students. As a costume, i pre-visited the art studio's children to prepare them their visit. When arrived at the art studio facility, i was was impress with how the warehouse had been transformed into a working space for the children from the neighborhood make art. When i ask Rachel for more information about space, she told me their visions, goals, and aspiration for the students. I thought it was brilliant to consider using art and holistic concept to reach out to children coming from poor families. So, i decided to contribute to the cause as an artist, gallery teacher, and as a mentor to the children from Little Haiti. Also, because i can speak their language i can better relate to their realities. Asser saint-val www.assersaintval.com
