North Shore Spotlight Volunteer: Laura Fox

Each volunteer joins our studio motivated by internal factors. Some come, looking to share their passion for community building and social justice while others wish to explore creative endeavors and enhancing their art practice. Lucky for us, we are blessed with a few multifaceted volunteers like Laura Fox. Laura came to the North Shore studio in May 2017. Every Wednesday, she brings a caring light and gentle tone while simultaneously leading the artists with her unique eye for design. Laura joined us on a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art and engages weekly as an artist mentor.
