LCAC's Public Arts Mentoring Program evolved from our pandemic Artist Training pilot and is creating a pipeline of fresh talent that will learn about history, culture, interpersonal and technical skills, and project implementation. As the program grows, we will welcome more high school and undergraduate students to develop their talent as creative professionals.
This July, the LCAC welcomed three students from Colorado Charter High School and Tyson Tafoya to be mentored under muralist JOLT from Guerilla Garden. A special “thank you” to our partner Denver Street Partnership and Little Saigon Business District for supporting our youth as they learn about the techniques behind creating a public mural and the rich history that bridges Mexico and Denver. We will spark many new collaborations across sectors, including the arts, mental wellness, support local businesses, and climate justice.
