Event description

Description

Life Pieces To Masterpieces is a year-round, comprehensive youth development and education organization for African American males ages 3-25 living in the under-served communities of Washington, DC. Life Pieces has intertwined a unique artistic style into the human development process; the resultant curriculum engages our Apprentices in academics, positive self-expression, creativity, and character education. Life Pieces To Masterpieces uses artistic expression to unlock potential, develop character and leadership, and prepare African American boys and young men to transform their lives and communities.

Life Pieces’ continuing goal is to embrace, encourage, and elevate our Apprentices so that they grow into Life Pieces’ vision of gentlemen, scholars, artists, and athletes who demonstrate social responsibility and create positive change in their communities.

The colorful, sewn, acrylic-on-canvas collage paintings displayed in this exhibit are created by Life Pieces Apprentices. Young Apprentices collaboratively create art masterpieces through the unique process of designing and cutting images out of fabric and stitching acrylic painted fabric onto canvas. Each masterpiece has a theme based on our Apprentices lives, dreams, challenges, and goals, or on the Life Pieces curriculum. Each masterpiece is accompanied by a story in the form of poem, prose, or essay.
