“I would love for them to find something that they love and to invest their time and energy into it. And to do their best to be strong, empathetic people. That’s what art has given me. I would hope that it gives them the same joy and the same lessons.”
John-Claude “J.C.” Futrell is a husband, an inspiring father to three beautiful children, and the Associate Director of Youth and Community Programming at the Denver Art Museum. J.C. believes that art provides a platform for people to tell their own stories, and it can be used as a tool for children to create, problem-solve, challenge themselves, and find inspiration.
