Episode 110: Today I talk with Julie & Jodie McLeod about Art Without Limits, a unique program that connects Artists with mentors. Art professionals that can really train them and give them a practical education that you can’t get in art school. They learn the real world day-to-day of the artists, they learn how to market, how to do finances, how to promote and sell. Best of all this is free! They are required to give back to the organization and the mentor.

I was able to actually go to the gallery to see the exhibition for myself. This emotionally charged show literally brought tears to my eyes as it shows a unique take on the nature of struggle and the beauty that can result.
