Centre D'Art Haitien in Port-au-Prince

Here is a picture of the Centre D'Art Haitian founded in 1944 by Dewitt Peters. He is an American teacher who went to Haiti with the objective to teach English. However, this did not turn out the way he had planed. Dewitt Peters developed an interest in the Haitian art and as a consequence started teaching art to lots of locals in the area.
