New Mural Program For Young Austin Artists

Color Squad, Creative Action’s newest youth ensemble, is currently looking for artists between the ages of 13 – 19 who want to experience how painting a mural or installing a sculpture has the power  to transform a public space.

Members of the Color Squad will work under the guidance of a professional artist to research, design and install murals aimed at transforming public spaces. Through this process, these young artists age 14-20 deeply engage in the city and the history of its neighborhoods, build important social and emotional skills as they work as a team to finalize and implement each design, and develop their abilities as young artists to use art to re-make spaces into places of beauty, reflection and inspiration.

Each member of the squad is paid for the work of designing and creating beauty across the Austin area. If you are interested in participating in our summer intensive, contact Patrick Torres at or call 512-442-8773 X 110.

Join us and make your mark on Austin!
