Together We Create will be hosting a large group of artists at Mexica New Year varying in age and experience. Starting with the newcomers to well- established graffiti artist, TWC will be facilitating an educational experience through hands-on practice with the students from local High Schools. TWC takes pride in exposing the youth to real-life problem-solving skills through the arts. Together We Create are educators; artists, and recognize the need for quality art.

 

Join us as TWC produces 16+ finished 8'x8' murals in the span of two days. Spectators can't help but be captivated by watching the process of having an empty wall transform into a stunning and colorful masterpiece in just hours. As the artists collectively complete these pieces, everyone is welcomed to watch, learn, and even take pictures as these soon become backdrops for some unique photo opportunities.
