Youth Go Paint Day Creates Some Amazing Art In Everett

Today was Youth Go Paint Day as part of Going All City Northwest 2022 in Everett, Washington.

Around 40 children between the ages of 8 – 14 were teamed up with an experienced graffiti artist to create their own vision of a mural.

The children chose a three or four letter word and then chose the style and did a mock-up. They then worked with an artist who helped them bring their vision to life.

Here are some photos of the work done today and the finished mural. Hopefully it will be transferred to a nearby location to add to the other 30 amazing murals being created around Everett this weekend. Click on photo to enlarge. You can see more photos and rolls of today’s work on Hyper’s Instagram page. Hyper says it plans to hold more classes for youth in Everett and Snohomish County this fall. Follow his Instagram for more details.

It started as a blank canvas at 10am on Saturday morning.

Throughout the day, young artists added a word to the wall.
