It's what this year's Art Hop is calling on teens to do.
During this year's Art Hop, a community event on Saturday organized by the nonprofit Banning Cultural Alliance to highlight local artists, teenager ages 13 to 18 are invited to participate in a mural competition.
The theme is to create.
"They can take the word and let that inspire their design," said Selena Wilson, Cultural Alliance youth program coordinator.
The event is a partnership with the Banning Mural Council, which is providing all of the materials for kids to participate.
"Our goal is to inspire them to be interested in going further with art and learning where it could take them," Wilson said.
There's still a chance for teenagers to participate in the mural competition, Wilson said. The event is also free for students.
Students will be broken down to teams of four, and teams with the highest scores will win prizes like the chance for a limousine trip to a regional art event, Wilson said.
Those who participate don't have to be artists or have a background in painting, Wilson said. Edwin Tuazon, a local muralist, will be there to guide students and answer questions during the competition.
