Executive and Creative Director CITYarts
CITYarts art education workshops and the actual creation of artworks, murals and mosaic are much more than an exciting event for these kids. The workshops teach art skills and allow their participants to see examples of artworks created by other young people from different backgrounds, and learn that they hold many common hopes for the world’s future.
The mural projects enable youth to work with diverse groups of community volunteers. Youth involved in our projects develop confidence and teamwork skills as they help transform their neighborhoods into vibrant, beautiful spaces. The project site becomes a place for them to meet, celebrate their achievements, and bridge cultural differences. Behind every mural, sculpture, and mosaic that we produce are the people who help make it possible: the children, the artists, the neighborhoods, the sponsors, CITYarts’ staff, Board of Directors and Advisors, the building owners and managers, and the volunteers that are almost too many to count.
