North Shore Volunteer Spotlight: Jack Lewitz

June 14, 2018 By dflorian

Jack Lewitz joined the North Shore studio as a volunteer in May of this year. He is a real estate broker with a master’s degree in social work and several years of experience volunteering for other non-profits. In the studio, Jack is a lively facilitator who approaches and assists each artist with the same level of enthusiasm. Despite being a newer face in our studio, Lewitz inspires community by exchanging ideas and looking for new ways to connect the studio with the larger arts community. We’re so glad that he is a part of our studio community and can’t wait to get to know him better! Enjoy an interview with studio artist Hector Jones and Jack Lewitz.
