Thursday, November 12, 2020
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Free virtual program for middle school and high school students offered on Zoom.

Presented by last year’s Museum Teen Council, the 20th Century in Color Teen Art Café event is an opportunity for middle school and high school students to meet and learn about the history of mural art and contemporary murals.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a painting workshop led by San Diego-based muralist, Acton Standard. In this workshop, students will get a street-level history view into the roots of graffiti morphing into the giant commissioned murals of today. Using aspects from the mural history session, the students will scale an image to a canvas and create their own graffiti/mural image inspired by Roland Petersen’s Shaded Figure painting from the Museum’s permanent collection. After the event, the Museum team will create a virtual mural combining each of the students’ works of art.

Enjoy the company of fellow teen artists and have the chance to win prizes!

RSVP by email to teenartcafe@sdmart.org. Please include your full name and school. Log-in instructions and a supply list will be provided with your confirmation.

The Museum will not provide materials, but will offer suggestions of supplies that may be accessible to all.
