Hello from South Carolina! During the second week in May, Art for After Hours returned to Greenville, South Carolina to bring street painting to the Artisphere International Arts Festival in a different way than usual... Instead of Anthony Cappetto creating a 3D street painting for the event, he guided a talented group of first time art students from Furman University (some pictured) in an intensive workshop leading to a full public exhibition of 2D reproductions over the weekend of May 9th through 11th, 2014.

Through our Vine page we have put in a video of the students in action...

A view of the student street painters focusing on the completion of the 2008 through 2013 Artisphere reproductions along the Reedy River Walk. The work was beautiful and a terrific effort by the young street painting artists. We at Art for After Hours are very proud of them and look forward to seeing more from them in the future.
Thanks to Marta Lanier and Ross McClain of Furman University for the beautiful still photos and Artisphere International Arts Festival for having us again to share our love for the art of street painting with a new generation of young artists.
If you are considering bringing street painting into your community, arts program, or corporate team building effort I am happy to share my vision with you at your convenience.
