The Art Division generously donated various art books to the  Painted Brain community center. Books about Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and everything in between are available to our community members: Painted Brain hopes this generous contribution will inspire artists to create their masterpieces.

Art Division is a non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting underserved youth who are interested in studying visual arts.

Art Division provides in-depth services to young adults aged 18-26 in the Rampart District of Los Angeles, an at-risk population within one of Los Angeles’ most densely populated and underserved communities. They believe that focused instruction, individualized tutoring, and personal support give students the tools they need to pursue higher education, achieve self-sufficiency, and obtain careers in the arts and related fields.

This transformation goes wild! 😤 With the generous donation from the Art Division, we have grown our collection. From an empty shelf to a treasure trove of stories that only continues to grow. Many thanks to @ArtDivisionLA 💝 for your support and partnership❣️
