Back To School time is right around the corner! In between playing hard and watching artists create murals the youth decorated the fronts and backs (and some insides) of notebooks for school with collage.
SUAMP (Southwest Urban Arts Mural Project) spent some casual time at TAP this week as Benny and his son performed some routine maintenance to the benches.
fter work this summer several SUAMP artists have been coming over to paint and this time their instructor, Ms J, came with them.
She will be leaving Michigan very soon and her youth (and community partners) are grateful for the passion and excellence that SUAMP has displayed with her leadership.
Had a BEAUTIFUL day at Open Studio today! Freddy came by to paint, Joyce tended to the gardens along the alley, Mary was inside the garage making smores, young participants put in work, TAP friends of old came through and even showed their younger siblings around, and peer-to-peer mentoring and positive youth-adult relationships were happening. Come out next week and be a part of TAP! Hope to see you all soon.
