Prisoner Art

We sometimes get letters which include wonderful illustrations by incarcerated artists. The work created provides rare insight into what it means to be incarcerated, and explores themes of loneliness, family, and discrimination. We also get pieces that are fun and beautiful. Here’s a small sample of art behind bars. To pause the slideshow, click on the image.

One of the top requests we receive is for books on how to draw. If you have any that you no longer use, please consider donating!
