Visual Arts and Design Academy

Spent last week at Santa Barbara High School's Visual Arts and Design Academy teaching the senior class. The best way to learn is by doing. So we put them to work on two murals located right outside their classroom door. For the first wall I created a mural based on the schools mascot. The second mural was designed and executed by the students themselves. Had a great time and learned a lot myself. Can't wait to work with VADA again! Thank you to Daniel Barnett and Calico Brown for reaching out and running the academy everyday. Thanks to all the students for your enthusiasm and hard work. Turned out great!
