Mister Mural X SPUSA Dallas

We are proud to officially welcome Mister Mural himself to the School Partners USA team as our lead artist in Dallas!

Of the collaboration, artist Michael McPheeters says:

"I am so excited and humbled to be a part of @inspire_programs and @nycthrive after school mentoring program this fall semester!

"I will be working with students at SOC (South Oak cliff High-school) to design and produce a mural with them at the school. Meeting the students (my team) last week has got me really inspired and thinking about people that have motivated & influenced me in my life.

"People always ask me, 'When did you know you would be an artist?' I was in first grade probably eating some Elmers glue or something and I remember the teachers telling me to draw this shark that was on the cover of National Geographic, so I copied the picture. The drawing was entered into a competition that went up to 12th grade and … I won! Something clicked inside me mainly from the positive affirmation of those teachers. And I’ve never put a pencil down since."
