Volunteer Teaching Artist - Graphic Design | Inner-City Arts
Inner-City Arts, one of the nation's most effective arts education providers, is an oasis of learning, achievement and creativity in the heart of Skid Row. As a volunteer teaching artist with the Art Institute Graphic Design Courses, I've had the privilege of collaboratively teaching a variety of empowering creative projects. Students are encouraged to be free and experimental while learning Adobe software basics and strong foundational principles to guide their digital work. Students bring their ideas to life using their hands and digital tools to create bold, playful, and fun designs that share their voices and stories!

Film Program Coordinator | Mark Making
Mark Making uses art to transform communities and empower individuals; spearheading a summer grant project, I coordinated and produced a 6-week program for Mark Making called Magic Markers. Program participants were granted soft-skill work preparedness coaching and hard-skill creative film-making guidance. Each video was written, directed, produced, and edited by Chattanooga teens, ages 14-18. Through the guidance of professional filmmakers, teens were able to complete the short films within a ten-day time period.
"Stop The Violence Chattanooga" is an original music video written and created by teens from Chattanooga, TN in resonance with the "Stop The Violence" movement. Special thanks to Yusuf Hakeem, Chattanooga District 9 City Councilman for speaking out about stopping the violence and supporting the youth in our city.
“Without A Home” is a poetic visual essay reflecting on the condition of homelessness through the eyes of a veteran. Written and directed by 14-year-old Kae’ Lani Cooley, “Without A Home” conveys empathy for every person's story and encourages viewers to withhold from making preemptive judgments about the state of an individual living with homelessness.
“The Voice That Saved My Life” is a narrative short film portraying a story of a young teen in an abusive situation. Written and directed by 14-year-old Detrell Clemons, “The Voice That Saved My Life” is based on a true story and encourages viewers to be a positive voice in the lives of young people around them.
