The Street Art Program for Youth is designed to provide a hands-on experience to youth who are interested in street art. Guided by a professional lead artist, the program allows up to 14 youth aged 12 to 17 to participate in a twelve-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

Alberta artist AJA Louden is the program lead and lead artist for the 2017 program. AJA is a Calgary-born muralist who runs the Aerosol Academy program across Alberta.

The artist chosen for the Thomson Family Park Public Art project worked on the project's mural in conjunction with our program.
