Meet John


What drew you to Art Start? 

I was always a creative, artistic kid and wanted to be able to share something I love and continue to love with the youth in Bushwick.

What is your most memorable moment as a mentor? 

Experiencing how excited the youth are when they get to be creative. They always dive right in and make amazing things.

How has your time as a mentor influenced you? How?

It has taught me to be more patient and shown me that there isn’t just one way to do something.

What do you love to do on your spare time?

I’m still an art kid at heart so I love museums, theatre, and architecture. I am a big fan of traveling anywhere I can and of course, continuing to explore NYC.
