More than a prisoner

Marquis Louden, a five-year inmate at Pelican Bay State Prison, is one of four who participate in the revived Arts-in-Corrections program.
 Arts-in-Corrections gives inmates an escape from prison life through art 

Marquis Louden regards his canvas, brush in hand, and squirts a dollop of purple onto his pallette.

There’s a rose on his canvas, but Louden says he doesn’t want to turn it into a typical rose. He blends the purple with white and begins to create a background as vibrant as his surroundings are neutral.

“We started with colored pencils, learning how to blend colors and what colors complement what color,” he said. “We still look at color wheels. We just did a project on split composition colors. It’s just a big learning process.”
