The Art Division recently made a very generous donation to Painted Brain of a variety of art books. And we’re not just talking about a few books, but a whole bookshelf of art books. Books about Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and everything in between.

This donation will not only help Painted Brain and the community but will also inspire artists to create their masterpieces. Art Division wants to spread their resources, as it understands the benefits of art in healing the community, a value essential to Painted Brain’s mission. This is a great partnership in supporting each other’s missions.

Painted Brain is extremely grateful for Art Division’s donation and support. Anyone is welcome to check out these great books at the Painted Brain Community Center, and these books have already sparked conversations among Painted Brain participants.

Art Division is a non-profit organization dedicated to training and supporting underserved youth. More specifically, youth who are interested in studying visual arts. Art Division distinguishes itself by providing 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. Art Division is also dedicated to community engagement and to building a thriving arts community in the Rampart District.Art calligraphy from Painted Brain industrial arts
