Courage seems like a skill you need in extreme situations. It may look like an epic movie scene with gargantuan armies and fantastical battles, a bystander running into a burning building to save a child, or a character confronting their most dreaded fear. While courage is most certainly needed in those situations, it is also an everyday skill we can use to empower ourselves as well as our peers. Atlanta based muralist, George F Baker III illustrates how courage can be used everywhere, in schools, at home, and most importantly within our communities.
George F. Baker III, also known as GFB3, is an illustrator, designer, and the creative director of Foster, a studio-collective encouraging the art of play. George brings lively motifs and a childlike spirit to every surface he paints on, and strives to revitalize the inner-child in all who see hi...
It takes courage to navigate some of life's challenges. George shares how courage is not always a matter of 'sink or swim.' From the moment we walk to the day we get to drive, embracing courage is just the start.
Even the smallest hills can feel like the largest mountains to overcome. We've all faced new experiences that can be quite the challenge, and George reflects on a past project that once felt impossible.
George meets up with local students at Horizons Atlanta, a summer program which increases access to quality academics and enrichment for underserved students. During the visit they discuss how courage has shaped their families, hobbies, and futures.
