We need our arts to teach us how to breathe, by Ray Bradbury

Painted Brain Community Arts Program and our Re-Entry Through the Arts Program!

reentry through the arts programPainted Brain and the California Arts Council present the Reentry Through the Arts Program designed to provide access to arts programming that promotes community building, supports mental health and community integration to returned residents of Los Angeles County.
