Emily Herr

Emily Herr got her diploma and business license in the same month. The CA Senior Studio and Business of CA classes laid the groundwork for her to start her mural-painting business right out of the gate. In the past year she’s painted 10 murals – from logos to the street art festival to residential fairy tales. Murals are her way to take image-making to a level beyond the rectangle, to the creation of an environment.

She is also heavily involved in the non-profit Arts in the Alley, which represents a mission to beautify and empower communities blighted by abandoned properties. They do this using marathon mural-painting events, during which hundreds of volunteers cover hundreds of square feet of old or temporary walls with bright mural
