Color Squad engages civic-minded teen artists to transform public spaces and explore relevant social issues through original murals, sculptures, art installations, and more. Students collaborate with professional artists and community partners and build artistic, social emotional, and leadership skills as they research and design public art projects for the community.
Past projects have included a prominent community mural in East Austin in partnership with Six Square and Cap Metro, a large-scale mural at the Central Texas Food Bank, an art installation at People’s Community Clinic, a community mural in Lott Pocket Park in partnership with GirlForward Austin, and the restoration of the iconic “Austin Postcard Mural” in South Austin.
Applications are still being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year. Learn more and apply here.
