Thunderbird Arts Center Spring Break Camp Instructor
Antoinette Cauley

From an early age, Antoinette found comfort and security in her set of pencils and sketchpad. She would spend hours a day at school, her local Boys & Girls Club, and at home drawing. Throughout her teenage years, Antoinette was able to perfect her color pencil technique and advance in to college level art courses as a high school student. Art seemed to be the only thing that ever made sense to Antoinette. Her ability to create art was the only real sense of stability she found as a youth. She knew that she had been given a special gift to create and that one day she could use it to change lives. It was her lifeline, her way of escaping the everyday struggle she and her family had to face. Being a Phoenix native, Antoinette’s work is very reflective of her city – the gritty and the beautiful. Her work is heavily influenced by rap music and hip hop culture with a focus on social injustice and politics. She combines the grittiness of inner city turmoil, war and tragedy with the beauty of music, vibrant color, texture, pattern and an emotionally driven message. Currently Antoinette works as a full time artist in her studio in Phoenix, Arizona. She also works with youth ages 5-18, teaching art classes that focus on drawing, painting and color theory.


Phoenix Center for the Arts Spring Break Camp Instructor
Preston Keller

If you would have asked Preston Keller (also known as ‘PK tha P.O.E.T.’) if he saw himself professionally making music as a teenage boy, he would have told you “no.” Now, three years into the industry, the Poet’s name is fondly associated with the Phoenix music scene. He started his artistry in his childhood, writing poetry kept safe in journals that he carried with him everywhere. In middle school, he started drumming and expanded his love of music through jazz band and marching. In 2014, he combined his love of poetry and music into his lyrical expressions. “Everything is poetry,” PK believes. “All that matters is how you choose to express it.” He defines personal success as touching people, even if just one, and inspiring them to walk in their purpose, no matter what it is. PK tha Poet works and volunteers at local schools and after-school programs with youth ages 10-18, teaching knowledge of self and how to express themselves through poetry. He is also a successful director and producer, releasing a documentary that captures the journey of local artists and entrepreneurs who are pursuing their purpose with the underground scene in nonconventional ways.
