THE COLEMAN DAVIS
Coleman Davis was a student at Valley Art Workshop, under director Miles Lewis. He was a kind and imaginative young man, empowered and burdened by great sensitivity. We lost him in February of 2021.
The arts are a lifeline for so many people. With this in mind, Coleman's parents and 11:11 A Creative Collective have come together to create a series of workshops tailored for young artists. The purpose of these weekend art camps is to introduce youth to the deep beauty of art history, the discipline of drawing and painting, and the personal affirmation of being part of a creative community. Our intention is that students leave the Coleman Davis Art Camp with a greater sense of confidence, direction, self-esteem, and artistic skill.
Art Camp is open to a maximum of 15 students. It is completely free of cost thanks to the generosity of the Davis family, in loving memory of Coleman.
- This camp is for students between the ages of 12 - 22 years old.
- BIPOC and low income students will be given priority.
- If accepted, students are required to attend a virtual orientation
- Applications are due by October 25, 2021
Virtual Orientation: October 30, 2021
Camp Dates: November 6 & 7
Location: Valley Art Workshop headquarters located in Woodland Hills, CA

- Each day will be broken into a morning and an afternoon session, where students are guided through a range of creative curricula and exercises.
- A lunch/snack and art materials will be provided.
Students are welcome to bring their own materials (sketchbooks, pencils, pens, etc.).
While this is not a long-term educational scholarship, students will be given resources and information for how to continue in their creative pursuits: independently, in local workshops, through online programs or in person with 11:11 A Creative Collective, or Valley Art Workshop classes.
