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. To date, K Space's Mural Art Program for teens has installed 24 murals in Corpus Christi.
Starting in 2022 the Summer Mural Arts Program for Teens became a free program due to the generous funding from The Frazier Family Foundation. This allowed all teens to be able to apply and become part of the program regardless of financial background.
Our grand reveal and opening reception for this year's mural will be on August 4th at 6:30 pm. The mural latest mural "I Saw Diego at the Washateria" is located at 605 North Chaparral St. Corpus Christi Texas.

About the Mural Design:
"The Seasons of the Sparkling City" - 2022
at Made in Corpus Christi / Milestones, 1524 S.Staples Street
The 2022 Mural "The Seasons of the Sparkling City" was designed by instructors Monica Marie Garcia and Mayra Zamora. The inspiration came after brainstorming ideas with building owners Andrew and Nikki Riojas and discussing things that represent Corpus Christi and our community. Each panel is designed to represent the different seasons both physically and culturally.
K Space Contemporary Portrait Project- 2022 Antonio E. Garcia Center 2021 Agnes St.
Beginning in 2022, Executive Director, Michelle Smythe suggested that Mural Camp participants create a self-portrait using the same method as we create our murals. It is a fun and creative way of keeping a record of camp participants current and former. These self-portraits will be installed in the entrance of the Antonio E. Garcia Arts and Education Center in September of 2022. This mural project will be added to each year, eventually filling up the entire entryway. It is not just portraits of campers but also portraits of those who have played an integral part in K Space's education programs over the years including previous instructors, K Space staff, and those who have helped us develop along the way.
Thank you to our sponsors and partners who make this program possible!
