Artist: Jess Bernhart

Jess Bernhart is an Atlanta-based artist, dabbling in painting, photography, installations, and creative writing. Jess is not a trained artist – one day she just found it sad that as kids we draw and paint and write stories all the time, and then we “grow up” and stop. So Jess started making art again. She believes that everyone is an artist, but not everyone knows it.  Jess also believes in the power of artists to change the world. Art is the best way to tell a story, to make a connection, and to represent humanity. If we ever enter utopia, we will ride in on the back of art.

Taylor T.

Inspiration:
Taylor T.

Taylor is 12 years old and has been a member of the Samuel L. Jones Club for six years.  Her favorite activity is running on the track team – “it’s a feeling like you’re flying, but you’re really pacing yourself to exceed your own standard.”  She says that the BGCMA has helped her develop self-esteem, confidence, and respect for herself; no longer quiet and shy, she is now comfortable taking risks and leading others.  To her, the best part about BGCMA is the staff – they give you support, attention and make you feel like family.
