The Value of Artistic Expression Inside Prison Walls

The Value of Artistic Expression Inside Prison Walls

Art in Prison is a collaborative workshop series conceived by Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) and developed in partnership with Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC). Workshop participants for the new program are incarcerated individuals living inside the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility. Program offerings include a variety of techniques, mediums and processes for creative expression, taught by ASLD faculty teachers. Feedback has been positive and participants have advocated for the right to keep their artworks despite restrictive rules inside the prison.
