The Mission- Balmy Alley, San Francisco.

Our Art Junket mural expert, Kaitlin Strange, guided us through the history, process, and techniques used in creating the Mission’s famous artworks.  Katie, an intern for Precita Eyes, was one of the artists who painted some of the murals in San Francisco. Katie wrote her Master thesis on the murals of San Francisco.   She has an intimate understanding of San Francisco murals and how they are created.
