The AIS program has been shepherded by Madeline Nieto Hope for the last decade. This year the program passed from Madeline’s loving hands to local sculptor and educator Joe Fox. We are deeply grateful to Madeline. She brought extraordinary energy to AIS, providing boundless creativity, a wide range of skills and unfailing encouragement to hundreds of students. Thankfully, Madeline is still near by at the Tomales Bay Youth Center and remains an Artist Member of GRO.
