Youth Portraits of Eco Heroes
A group of East Bay middle and high school students from Berkeley's Young Artists Workspace (YAWS) created this collection of portraits featuring 12 Bay Area residents who have done important work to preserve and heal the environment.
The Young Artists Workspace (YAWS) is a highly accessible community art center dedicated to providing Berkeleyʼs children, ages two to sixteen, with low cost ﬁne art classes designed to expand their knowledge of various visual art techniques, help them develop an appreciation of art from many cultures, and enable them to share their artwork by participating in public exhibitions.
