Youth murals on TDS and next door

In case you aren't familiar with it, The Drawing Studio teaches art classes — and much more than drawing. Somewhere in the mix is the MOCA Tucson Minor Mutiny (see the second photo below). Their Fall 2023 page says “Minor Mutiny is a leadership program for high school students between the ages of 13 and 18 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson. Selected participants will receive a $350 stipend for the Fall 2023 semester. Participants will work with museum staff and community partners to design and implement public art projects.”

I'm not sure how this all fits together. But I do know that there are murals on the west side of The Drawing Studio building and just south of TDS along Tucson Boulevard on the boarded-up front of what looks like a former convenience store.

The second mural is just south of the first one:

Just south of TDS

Here's the storefront…
