Secret Walls Academy X Silverstreetz
SilverStreetz Becomes The Secret Walls Academy Art Battle Summer Champion of 2020!
During the summer months, Secret Walls Academy hosts a week long visual arts camp for children ages 10-17. The kids are split into groups and assigned a Secret Walls certified artist as the lead instructor. These artists are accomplished, working professionals and influential in their own right with regard to their specific fields of focus. Among the instructors this time around were lillipore, geoffgouveia, goopmassta, paperfrank, and ninapalomba.
In addition to the talented instructors, the students are also treated to guest artists throughout the week. Effectively broadening out the young students' perspective on what it means to be an artist. Throughout the week young artists cover basic illustration, character building, visual story telling, and how to think like a muralist. The week culminates with an art battle involving all of the students from each different team going head to head for 20 minutes a round. This year's art battle would be the first ever to be held virtually and live streamed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Led by Geoff Gouveia, SilverStreetz was able to advance to the final 20 minute round where he managed to reign supreme and bask in the glow of the coveted Secret Walls belt.
