Beats Crocodile Dundee's method for sure.

The Court's Home Earns Some Front Page Ink

Court 13's world headquarters, better known as the Studio at Colton (and formerly Charles J Colton Middle School, pre-storm) made it above the fold this week in the New Orleans Times-Picayune. An extensive feature article dominated the front page of the local periodical, detailing all the who what and how that goes down at Colton.

Court 13 is just one of many artistic outfits that has mounted a shingle. As per the article:

Several times a week, more than 150 students, mostly high schoolers from the Recovery School District, spend time at the Studio at Colton -- a fledgling arts center where an idle campus has been transformed into work space for dozens of artists.

The article also dishes out some words of wisdom from Court associate Annie E, who also works and teaches out of Colton, pimping the rides of neighborhood youth through her re-upholstery class.
