Drawing Across the Lines
Non Profit 501c3
It is my belief that art has a direct link to the heart. The universality of art, to express emotion and build on the human experience, suggests art itself has the potential to cut through the rhetoric of discrimination, isolation and othering enforced during times of war or any other form of crisis that forces people to flee from their homes, or to be feared based simply on difference.

“Art doesn’t give rise to anything in us that isn’t already there. It simply stirs our curious consciousness and sparks a fire that illuminates who we have always wanted to be.”
― Kamand Kojouri
Established non-profit status 501c3, November 2021.
Completed workshops with the state of Florida in 2021, and scheduled classes with the Studio of Key West, in January 2022.
Drawing Across the Lines brings workshops to refugee centers, schools, shelters, and orphanages in San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. I have worked in this capacity at the San Diego Museum of Art in the education department. My work has fulfilled a grant from the National Endowments of the Arts and Qualcomm.
