High School Mural Project headed by Washington, DC muralist G. Byron Peck

My friend, Washington, DC Muralist G. Byron Peck of City Arts,Inc is at it again with a group of student's in Montgomery County. He's heading up a mural program for the aspiring artists. These kids are in for a real treat working with the masterful Byron!

"Arts on the Block is an on-the-job training program for Montgomery County high school students that gives aspiring artists a chance to work with professionals. The Underpass Project, a mural that will cover the Georgia Avenue and Blair Mill Road underpass, is the first public art project done by the Arts on the Block program. "It's just a great experience," said junior Benjamin Meyer. "To be able to work with famous artists—I feel like a rock star."
