student stories.

artworxLA exclusively serves Los Angeles teens (ages 14-18) at high risk of dropping out of high school. Given a second chance, they have come to alternative schools because of failing grades, behavioral issues, a history of incarceration, or expulsion. Our work supports and empowers them to achieve new, positive identities - high school graduate, artist, college student, employee, community member, leader, and so many others. artworxLA works with this population of students because they are the students most in need of re-engagement, and while arts are a key engager, many alternative education schools have limited or no arts programming.
