Charlene Young

Charlene first discovered ArtSpace when she was part of the WorkFirst program. Earlier in her life Charlene drew and painted, but she feels nothing she created was particularly impressive.

It was in ArtSpace that Charlene truly learned how to paint.  She now creates art to escape and to express whatever she is feeling.  For Charlene, “ArtSpace is important because it allows one to relax, be independent, and develop the skills of a true artist.” She also emphasizes the importance of ArtSpace to HomeFront because allows artists to sell their art and gain recognition for it, and it raises money for other families at HomeFront.
