Hi, I'm Sya Warfield, a visual artist based in Los Angeles, California. I have a passion for storytelling and narratives. For me, collaboration is most important and working with a team of creatives is my natural element.
I use Premiere Pro for editing video and shoot with a Canon 5 D Mark iii.
New Class Mural is a grassroots public art project located in Los Angeles, California, founded and directed by Sya Warfield. We believe creativity will change the world. Our goal is to build confidence and leadership skills to youth by teaching photography and art.
New Class Mural provides an opportunity for collaboration, design and executing a project from start to finish.
Summer 2017, we spent 3 weeks on the Navajo Nation in Shonto, Arizona working with the children at Shonto Preparatory School. We produced 2 murals on the Navajo Nation spelling out the words LOVE and BELIEVE chosen by the children attending the program. These murals are made of the photographs the children took during the workshop. Our theme was patterns in nature.
We produced 5 murals throughout 2017. These murals are located in San Francisco, CA, Shonto, AZ and Boulder, CO. To view work created by New Class Mural check out our instagram.
We look to become a home to diverse youth communities by focusing on education and the arts. Our mission is to gracefully transform the world into a more peaceful and beautiful place one wall at a time.
During our workshops, each child uses a camera and we discuss ways to capture an image by observing their environment, framing their subject and using light. With photographs taken during this time, we create a mural. We support a social movement to cultivate empathy and inspire youth.
Are you a school or business owner wanting a mural on your wall? We would love to hear from you. Email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
