Hear about the important work of the Prison Arts Project (PAP), which bring arts education to incarcerated individuals. PAP believes participation in the artistic process significantly affects a person’s self-esteem and general outlook on the world, and that art workshops teach self-discipline, problem-solving, and concentration through absorption in a specific creative endeavor.


Watch on YouTube.

PAP, a major program of the William James Association, offers classes at San Quentin, taught by professional artists in hands-on visual, performing and literary art workshops. PAP, and other successful Arts in Corrections programs, are proven to decrease institutional tensions, lower recidivism rates and enrich the incarcerated individual’s environment.
