Create custom graphics and art on skateboards to showcase kids' unique taste and style while skating! Jairo will provide recycled skateboards, and together they'll be prepped using sandpaper and primer. Kids will sketch their designs and ideas as they work up a cool concept, and ultimately create their works of art on the boards themselves using sharpies and/or paint. Longer experiences and weekly series also include skateboarding instruction once the boards are decorated and ready to rock! 🛹
