    Fortune is a Bay Area arts educator whose practice includes fashion design. He believes art is a healing force in children’s lives and encourages his students to find their own voice and identity through art-making. Teaching art to children is Fortune’s inspiration for creating and exhibiting his own work.

Berkeley-based artist David Huffman fuses symbolic elements with mixed media to create artworks that tell a visual story. Basketball nets saturated in paint create texture, and layers of color create depth. Using paint, paper, stencils, and collage, work with artist Kaya Fortune to represent your own ideas in a textured, abstract composition inspired by Huffman’s paintings.
