PAINT THE CITY: MAKING ART FOR THE PEOPLE - register now!

A week-long spring break camp for ages 8 - 13
Monday, April 17 - Friday, April 21: 9:30am - 3pm

Join us during Spring Break 2017 for a week of collaborative painting and arts, from t-shirts to public murals! In this week-long camp, we’ll bring youth together with professional artists to learn to use public space as a canvas, and art as a tool for social change. Throughout the week we’ll experiment with different ways to make art for the people: we might silkscreen t-shirts, wheat-paste posters, make stencils, and create roadside sculptures and street installations. We'll also design and paint a large, public mural for our city: working together to develop a shared vision, paint an unused wall, and then unveiling our final mural in a community celebration and party. A team of youth media-makers will use photography and film to document our projects and process along the way. Come bring your voice and vision to this week of collaborative neighborhood arts!
