Studio In The City
Studio in the City is an annual program that provides youth ages 15 - 19 with opportunities to apprentice in the arts on various canvases and landscapes throughout the City of North Vancouver. Studio in the City is a City of North Vancouver youth employment program that partners with supporters of the arts; including Lonsdale Quay Market, Artists for Kids, the Vancouver Biennale, and the Digital Media Academy.
Within this project I taught a class of 8 young artists how to benefit to their community through the means of creation and most importantly within mural art & public art projects. This was an 8 week course with the final project being a large scale alley way mural project built and painted to transform a dirty alley way into a vibrant space bringing together the local community. Since launching this project this has become the most famous mural location in Vancouver BC and gone beyond the expectations of the council and its community
