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. 

Applications for the summer of 2024 Camp are NOW OPEN! 


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 15th of their acceptance into the program.

The deadline for applications is May 12th.

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 install days each week. (Usually Thursday and Friday). Our mural location for 2024 will be on the wall of Axis Tattoo,  across the street from K Space Contemporary (Very close!).

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 K Space Contemporary where they will also have access to a bathroom and extra water. 

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 September 6th during the September Art Walk!

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!
