Performing at NMA 2012!
Nima Muhinmanchi Art (NMA) is one of my many labors of love. NMA is an after-school art workshop program conceived to empower youth in Nima to engage in the arts creatively, educationally and vocationally. Local artists mentor promising junior high school students in Nima in visual arts, music, and design. I serve as creative director and music workshop leader for this project.
