An intro to aerosol painting summer camp

Free Wall is a FREE introductory 3-week summer camp in which students learn the history and techniques of aerosol writing with local masters of the medium. Students practice letter composition and present a final piece at the end of the session. Open to youth ages 8-21. All supplies and materials provided; no previous experience necessary.

The health and safety of you, your family and the community is of utmost importance to us. As Free Wall is already a primarily outdoor and physically spaced-out class, we will still hold class in July and August. We are currently working on modifications for necessary physical distance and other safety measure. We will continue to communicate with you as we make these plans.

Both July and August are full – Free Wall goes quiet for the school year and will begin again Summer 2021!
