Artful Life has been working with Albuquerque’s International District (ID) community since 2011.


In order to cultivate the next generation of community artists and engaged citizens, in 2017 Artful Life began working with young neighborhood artists who are creating art where they live.

This work has been generously funded by the McCune Charitable Foundation, the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico Arts, the Albuquerque Community Foundation, and the Atlantic Philanthropies--we're so grateful for their support. 

Thanks also to the amazing visiting artists who have worked with the teens over the course of several years:  Helen Atkins, Monique Montoya, Nan Masland, Erin Hudson, Julia Mandeville, Billy Joe Miller, Deborah Gavel, Mindy Grossberg, Hayley Greenfeather, Rene Palomares, Elsa Menendez, Shelle Sanchez, and Alexis Kaminsky.
