Arts in Corrections

Since 2014 DNACA has been a subcontractor for the William James Association's Arts in Corrections program. They contract with teaching artists to offer workshops in California State Prisons throughout the state. DNACA helps to coordinate with several artists in our region to teach varying media at Pelican Bay State Prison, including: painting, drawing, guitar, creative writing, and performance art. Each spring, usually April, DNACA dedicates one of its rotating shows in the courthouse to an exhibit of the work created by these students.
