The MNA Dept. of Juvenile Justice Art Program currently serves the young people in the Alachua County DJJ system. For protection, and privacy of the young artists and their families the identities of these individuals, and the full image of their artwork is not always fully displayed.
The purpose of this gallery is to show a portion of what is being created by these brilliant youth in class. The goal of the MNA DJJ Art Program is to create a space of creativity the artists are invited to attend while in the DJJ facility. Once the individuals are released they are encouraged to continue artistic experimentation in the Made New Arts Community Classroom we are working towards attaining, where young creatives can build positive connections while developing their skill, and ingenuity.
Each child that attends the class receives their completed pieces. Artworks from each class are kept on display in the welcome area, and main hallway within the DJJ facility. The completed work is kept in MNA display cases installed by the Alachua County DJJ facility. We thank them for their continued support of Made New Arts classes.
