Art In West Texas

I hopped on the Union Pacific Railroad train to Alpine, Texas and with good reason.

This was my first train ride since childhood. I have always wanted to repeat the fun train trips I experienced as a kid and my opportunity came up this October. I participated in the Alpine Arts and Education project. I was the guest artist visiting to teach the high school students a street painting workshop.

Over one hundred students participated and created wonderful pieces of art that allowed them to express their creativity in a new way. The project couldn’t have happened without the fantastic effort of the project coordinators on the ground and the students’ willingness to experience a new art medium. Go Bucks!

In November I will return as the featured street artist for Artwalk. I will be creating a 10 foot by 20 foot original piece of street art at Brown Dog Garden. This will be my first Artwalk and I am very excited to attend and create a special piece of ephemeral art for Alpine.

The Alpine Artwalk takes place on November 21 & 22, 2014, in downtown Alpine.
