Life Pieces to Masterpieces

Grant Awarded: $20,000

Founded in 1996, Life Pieces to Masterpieces (LPTM) is an art-based, year-round comprehensive youth development and education organization for African American males, ages 3 to 25. Focused on the under-served communities East of the River in Washington, D.C., LPTM offers tutoring, mentoring, leadership and youth development as well as artistic and academic enrichment.

To mark the successes it achieved over the past 15 years, LPTM received a grant to create an anniversary catalog that showcases the impressive artwork done by the young men and boys in the program. The catalog will also debut LPTM’s new graphic identity and serve as a premium gift to prospective donors and other constituents.
