K Space's Mural Arts Program for Teens was established in 2016 and has since taken off! K Space Contemporary is proud to host a summer mural arts program for teens, the only one of its kind in the Coastal Bend region. This program is designed for teens ages 13 to 17 who want to be more involved in their local art community and are interested in pursuing art in the future.
This year our Summer Camp will be hosted in Downtown Corpus Christ and program participants will be able to attend for free due to the generosity of the Fraizer Foundation. Participants will be selected by juried application and be notified by May 22nd of their acceptance into the program.
The deadline for applications is May 15th.
Detailed Camp Information:
Camp begins at 9 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Campers are to be dropped off at 415 D Starr Street and they will then be led to our upstairs studio work area. You may drop off as early as 8:30 but no earlier.
Campers will need to bring a sack lunch and a water bottle each day. K Space will provide a morning/afternoon snack but not a full lunch.
Most of the work for this mural will be done inside of our air-conditioned studio space but there will be one to two designated on-site workdays each week.
On designated on-site workdays campers will need to be dropped off at Made in Corpus Christi (1524 S Staples St, Corpus Christi, TX 78404). These will most likely be on Thursdays of each week and/or Fridays. Parents will receive emails about the drop-off and pick-up location schedule each week in case anything changes. Please be sure you have provided us with an email you check regularly.
During on-site workdays, we will have coolers of water and tents for campers to catch some shade. If needed campers will also be able to cool off inside of Made in Corpus Christi/Milestones where they will also have access to a bathroom. Campers will need to be picked up from this location during on-site workdays.
Friday of each week K Space will host a weekly reception to show parents the progress made during the week. These will happen at 3:00 pm every Friday the camp is in session.
Our grand reveal and opening reception for this year's mural will be on August 13th.
2D Portfolio: Please submit photos of 3-5 works. Please make sure your photos are clear and well lit.
