"My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso." Pablo Picasso

Our inner city communities have painted pictures that our young people are believing to be the norm and, as such, are replicating daily-pictures of violence, homicide, incarceration, illegal activity, gangs, and high school drop-outs. It’s a despairing cycle. Generations are affected by pictures that have been painted by the generations before them. Who will stop the cycle? I believe that’s it’s time to show these young people how to paint pictures of worth!—how to paint masterpieces.

We must first teach inner city youth how to think better – and then paint those good thoughts of a great future, a long life, and a successful career rather than painting and becoming what they see. Let’s help them paint positive pictures!
