“I wanna be a ‘street artist’ so frickin’ bad…buy all of the things I never had..” The glitz, the glamor, the fame: artists must have it all, but is that a true depiction of an artist’s day to day life? Last Friday, we hosted 10 students from F1rst Graduate (a non-profit in the Presidio) for their Career day.  For those who don’t know, F1rst Graduate is an amazing organization that helps students become the first in their families to graduate from college.  On their career day, the kids heard about the highs and lows of being an artist and a gallery owner, as seen through the eyes of resident artist and art director, Roman and gallery founder, Dan.  After the discussion panel and a mural walk tour around SoMa, everyone got to practice their letterstyling. Future graff artists in the making? We think so!

Practicing letterstyles!

Shoot for the stars, kids!

Thanks for being an awesome group and best of luck with your schooling, career, and whatever future endeavors you may pursue! And remember what Roman said, “never give up!”
