Teens of San Francisco
When I think of what makes up a city’s identity, it is the people that form the culture and individuality of neighborhoods. I am an architecture and design high school teacher at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco. I want to create a series of portrait paintings of my high school students identifying the neighborhoods they are being brought up in throughout San Francisco. They are part of the unique culture of their neighborhoods as well as influenced and nourished by the distinctive characteristics and cultures their neighborhoods offer.
