“This program is very dear to my heart, actually, because 12 years ago I was actually in their shoes as a student here.”

– Joseph Canizales

Meet Joseph, a Salvadoran-Honduran-American artist based in Miami, Florida, who has come full circle from A4L student to Teaching Artist!

As a Lewis Arts Studio student in the program’s inaugural class, he focused on honing his artistic skills on his way to conquer his dream of being a professional artist. Nowadays, he utilizes 3D printing, 3D modeling, 3D scanning, and analog processes to amplify an understanding of geological sites. He’s also been included in international exhibits and artist residencies.

We’re extremely thrilled to have him working with a new generation of future artists, and proud of all his amazing accomplishments to date!
