Today was Youth Go Paint Day as part of Going All City Northwest 2022 in Everett, Washington.

About 40 children between the ages of 8 and 14 were teamed up with an experienced graffiti artist to create their own vision on a mural.

The children chose a three or four letter word, then decided on the style and made a model. They then worked with an artist who helped bring their vision to life.

Here are some pictures of the work done today and the finished mural. Hopefully it will be moved to a nearby location to add to the other 30 amazing murals created around Everett this weekend.

Follow his Instagram for more details.

It started Saturday morning at 10 a.m. like a blank canvas.

Throughout the day, young artists added a word to the wall.
