As well as in providing murals that will give pride to their local communities.

It transforms public spaces and individual lives. As well as in providing murals that will give pride to their local communities. The objective of the program is to Paint to Succeed! This program will help all community members with the ability to participate by learning to collaborate and participate in the process of being a part of community murals project by applying past educational skills needed to apply to the process of accomplishment of each mural.
