Spring Vacation

I went to visit my sister in Oakland last week for my spring break!  But it’s not a lazy vacation and I kept practice for marathon.  I ran around Lake Merritt 6 times to total 18 miles with the help of family relayers who ran or biked with me!

Montell Payne

Montell's Success Story When Montell joined The Arts of Life, he was hesitant to call our studio home. Now, Montell's smile lights up a room.

Every day he lets us know that he's happy and proud to be an artist at The Arts of Life and we are lucky to have him in community.
