Jubilee Arts and BOPA’s Art@Work program in partnership with Baltimore City Youth Works is officially back for its second year of creating high impact community art. In 2015, the project was a huge success as we employed over 70 teens, ages 14 to 21 to paint and design eight murals and one mosaic in Baltimore’s Sandtown/Winchester neighborhood. Under the leadership of master artists the young people interviewed neighbors and created art that represented the community. The results were stunning additions to our community but also a meaningful way of addressing the need to give our youth employment, skill training (like interviewing and resume writing), and a creative way to express themselves in our community.


We are seeking creative, engaging, resourceful, and organized Mural Artist Apprentice Interns to partner with the master artist in executing a high impact murals and mosaics in collaboration with ten youth artists ages 14 to 21.

Interns will gain experience in mural painting, teaching and will have significant responsibility in the development of the mural. This is a dream project for an artist interested in the transformative value of art in community development.
