Louis Kaufman (he/they)
Louis (he/him) teaches Urban Boatbuilders’ partnership program with Focus Beyond Transitions School. His education practice is rooted in his previous jobs teaching karate, leading youth camping trips, and learning woodworking skills as a housing framer and artist. What attracts him to Urban Boatbuilders is the opportunity to connect his creative work to youth and his community.
Previous art projects include designing arcade games, volunteering with Art Shanty, and creating stringed instruments at the Penland School of Crafts. Outside the woodshop, you can find him upgrading his tiny house and canoeing.
