"Let the rain kiss you. 
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. 
Let the rain sing you a lullaby....

Art Education Activities  

Guess what we did during Spring Break!  We worked on our creative skills at the S.H.A.P.E. Center.

The Collective met some very nice folks in March

Dr. Carrie Markello, left, Clinical Associate Professor, Art Education, and some of her students at the University of Houston's College of Education visited The Collective to learn more about our programs.  We love to share our activities and find out what the students are doing. 
Visitors from the Houston Black Leadership Institute enjoyed Alonzo Williams' exhibition "The 100 Strangers Project."

The Collective's founder and executive director Michelle Barnes participated in the University of Houston Downtown Internship Fair.
