This workshop will focus on the importance of art in public spaces and give participants the tools to transform any wall into a mural! During the week, we’ll take a mural tour of Kingston, where we’ll discuss muralism, street art, and the history of graffiti. Working together as a team, we’ll create a one-of-a-kind mural that will be displayed for the entirety of the summer at WSW. Participants will leave with a full understanding of how to create large scale art that will last on walls for years to come.
Symone Salib (she/her) is a first generation Cuban/Egyptian street artist, muralist, and educator based out of Philadelphia. Through acrylic paint and illustration she works to highlight the lives of people, with an emphasis on BIPOC across her city since 2017. She focuses on vibrantly sharing the stories of people in hopes we can connect and resonate with humans who are different from ourselves. She strives to spread joy and create a space where people are not only seen but heard. Her work is a reclamation of space both physically and politically as she asserts the humanity of black and brown bodies and the necessity for justice against police brutality, sexism and homophobia.
