Canadian stained glass artist, Jean Beaulieu, began teaching teenagers who were living on the streets in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, how to help him foil glass for his work. This effort eventually gave birth to the MargiArt project and Les Ateliers ART-GO, and Beaulieu was awarded a commission by the city to help the youth create seventeen windows for the cruise ship terminal. Beaulieu continues the projects by designing and marketing pattern books to supplement his programs for street kids.
