Art on the Inside: Incarcerated Girls Share Their Stories


In August 2010, as part of a partnership between Project NIA and the Jane Addams Hull House Museum, young women at the JTDC participated in a comic arts workshop led by teaching artist Elgin Smith.  The pieces that were created by the youth will be compiled as part of a zine about juvenile justice.   That zine will be released in Spring 2011.  In the meantime, we wanted to share one piece that was created by one of the young women.
