Prison program seeks art teachers
An arts program for inmates at Lansing Correctional Facility is looking for volunteer instructors.
"We need visual artists, especially - drawing, oil painting, watercolors," said Mary Cohen, special projects coordinator for the Kansas City, Kan.-based Arts In Prison Inc. Classes are taught in the evening on weekdays.
Volunteers are subject to background checks and are required to attend training on Nov. 5.
"But we need to hear from people by early September so we can order supplies and do some planning," Cohen said.
