All the students who signed up happened to be girls, although the workshop was open to everyone. We ended up leading an all girl student team to paint the utility box.

Utility Box Project with Del Rey Community

Melissa is a local to Del Rey Community and partnered with the Del Rey neighborhood council to paint a box herself and distribute a couple other boxes to contributing artists with professional background in the arts and murals. Melissa invited artists who have shared and volunteered their time and materials to these boxes and to workshops within the neighborhood.
