Our fourth and final day with Carlos Donjuan was a very special one. After experiencing the surprising effects of Kenny Scharf’s “Karbombz!” on several people’s vehicles when the artist was in town in October, the teens realized the potential of adorning everyday objects with creative expression—creating a work of art that interacts with the real world.

This week, Carlos began class with a presentation in the lecture room. The focus of his talk was the work of his collective, SOUR GRAPES. Over the last couple of years, Carlos and the SOUR GRAPES crew have been awarded the opportunity to paint several large-scale public murals in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

This week, the teens were introduced to artist, professor, and SOUR GRAPES member Carlos Donjuan, who will work with the students for the next four classes. Carlos lives in Dallas and teaches at the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown locally, nationally, and internationally, and it is an honor to have him as our visiting artist this season.
