Street Art Program for Youth

Date: May 23, 2018

The Street Art Program for Youth is designed to provide a hands-on experience to youth who are interested in street art. Guided by a professional lead artist, the program allows up to 14 youth aged 12 to 17 to participate in a 5-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

The Street Art Program for Youth creates a strong sense of community amongst youth interested in the practice of street art while inspiring them with professional street artists & mentors. The youth who participate in this program work with a lead artist to design, develop and install a large-scale street art mural in the city that they can be proud to call their own.

AJA Louden is program lead and lead artist for the 2018 program. AJA is a Calgary-born muralist who runs the Aerosol Academy program across Alberta.

Street Art will run from July 4th to August 15th, 2018 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 4:30-7:00 p.m.at the Historic Holy Angels School, 2105 Cliff St. S.W.
