Every summer for many years now it has been my pleasure, along with other volunteers and generous sponsors, to help facilitate the Carpinteria Teen Mural Project at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center. The enthusiasm, creativity and artistry produced by the youth of our community continues to amaze and inspire me. These young artists seize the opportunity to express themselves in the most imaginative ways. They make me proud to call myself a fellow artist from Carpinteria, California. I can't wait to see what they will share with us this year given the theme In My Life. - John Wullbrandt, professional artists.
