Today we are reflecting on our tremendous year of growth. We wrapped up 48 projects ranging from large scale murals, indoor walls, bus stop panels and all the new surfaces we were challenged to paint. We love the versatility of paint and our teams enthusiasm to always say yes, at least once... Everything is worth a try! We are so excited for the new ideas and dreams that you all will share us in the new year and the many new things we will decorate in our lovely Seattle, and beyond! Happy Holidays friends!

Ever cruise past 23rd and Jackson in the Central District? Keep your 👀 peeled for a big project our teens worked on this summer! Always fun and educational to paint on new surfaces like these wind screens (that surround pretty much every construction site in Seattle these days) // Thanks Adam, Jada and Calob for the art - @arwagh for the photos and Marpac for the commission!.

#GivingTuesday is still going! // Another appreciation post with our dream artist @oliviaknappart 🧠This summer we helped Johnson + Carr conceptualize and bring a mural to life on a new development on Capitol Hill. Working with partners like them also gave us the opportunity to host a group of stellar volunteers to paint our #keepcaphillqueered mural designed by @evannstrathern ! This photo shows a step in Olivia’s process where she loosely transfers her mural with the help of @luxcollective and then she returns in daylight to refine the lines to perfection 👌🏾 urbanartworks #givingtuesday #giveback #givingbacktothecommunity #goodcause #nonprofit #socialimpact #donate #nonprofitlife #notforprofit #nonprofits #501c3 #community #mural #wip #urbanart #muralart #murals #seattlemurals #muralsdaily #publicart

TODAY is #GivingTuesday!!! Link to Donate in profile! // Urban ArtWorks loves the opportunity to partner with community groups to transform spaces, but we REALLY love when this opportunity is bigger than a football field in the heat of summer! We helped the Central District residents lay out and paint a mural in #Africatown (23rd x Union) this summer and it is our biggest ground mural to date. Having extra funding to be able to provide services to community groups offers us the chance to say yes to more projects like this. Please consider donating on #GivingTuesday ✨💫 urbanartworks #givingtuesday #giveback #givingbacktothecommunity #goodcause #nonprofit #socialimpact #donate #nonprofitlife #notforprofit #nonprofits #501c3 #community #mural #wip #urbanart #muralart #murals #seattlemurals #muralsdaily #publicart

#GivingTuesday (link in profile) // Home can be defined and pictured in a variety of ways. Sometimes it may be a tiny little snail house and sometimes home can be the @urbanartworks studio - where youth can enter the doors, be greeted by our staff and supported by their mentors. We provide continuity and presence for our youth to ensure stability in their lives. Please consider donating on #GivingTuesday to ensure our home, and our youth's home will always be warm, with plentyyyy of yummy snacks and good music (thanks to awesome teachers like @illustrativewest @adamburgesglass and DJ @arwagh )

GivingTuesday countdown continues... As our driving force, and director @kathleenfwarren says about Urban ArtWorks: "The youth are our heart, and public art our backbone." Working with youth is our pride and joy, and the reason we are always excited to come to work; the public art commissions ensure our youth programming has funding backing it (pun intended). Giving Tuesday is another great opportunity to help us fund MORE programs to serve more youth experiencing wide opportunity gaps 🙌🏾 #urbanartworks #givingtuesday #giveback #givingbacktothecommunity #goodcause #nonprofit #socialimpact #donate #nonprofitlife #notforprofit #nonprofits #501c3 #community #mural #wip #urbanart #muralart #murals #seattlemurals #muralsdaily #publicart

We are oh so #thankful for creative partners like @brian_sanchez, who collaborated with our youth on a design that was motivational, inspiring and honest. Thank you @kc4culture for partnering on this mural at the Children and Family Justice Center and last, but certainly not least, our incredible youth that took the meaning of the mural to heart and created an incredible visual and color palette for those entering the CFJC. Projects like these are truly the heart of our organization. #thankyou
