Together We Create (TWC) is an artist collective that has been live painting at events in San Jose and Fresno, California since 2016. We serve the Bay Area by offering hands on experience in street art through live painting events in the community. TWC collaborates with some of the Bay Area's best muralists, graffiti artists, and fine artists to produce some of San Jose's most innovative murals right before your eyes. Part visual art, part performance art, spectators can't help but to be captivated by the transformation of an empty wall to a stunning and colorful masterpiece in just hours. As artists collectively complete their work, everyone is welcomed to watch, learn, and enjoy as these murals soon become backdrops for some unique photo opportunities.
TWC strives to not only expand professionally as artists, but to bring the same rigor to the youth by teaching them life skills that come from creating art in public events. We strive to empower the youth by teaching them self-confidence and problem-solving skills that only the art of graffiti has the power to evoke. Schools currently associated with TWC are Latino College Preparatory Academy, Leigh High School, and San Jose High School. Still adding schools to the list, TWC takes pride in being mindful educators to our most important assets: the youth.
