Spend the day with mural artists learning spray paint techniques and talking mental health!

During this community building event, the adults will have the opportunity to participate in an open panel discussion with working Mural Artists and Mental Health professionals to discuss art as a coping mechanism and help break down the stigma surrounding urban art. Have questions? They've got answers. Just want to sit back and listen? Grab a warm drink and pull up a chair.

At the same time, the youth get to play with spray paint! They will work on hands-on art projects with BUMP mural artists and work on creatively expressing their feelings with spray paint and various other creative modalities. Once the creativity is flowing, everyone will come together to create a collaborative art piece (yes adults, you get to spray paint too) and enjoy a BBQ complete with live music from local bands. (Artists and Musicians to be announced). You don't want to miss this!
