Young Masters Success Story

The Young Masters program was developed in 2017 with the hopes of developing young art students into well rounded artists. Learning not only how to develop their own crafts, but experiencing other art disciplines, being mentored by other professional artists as well as learning other important roles in the arts such as curating, business development and being able to mentor their peers.

One of our shining stars was referred by his then teacher, Erika Cespedes
 from Dreyfoos HS, student Marc Ludwigsen. 
He was eager to learn all the aspects of the program and absorbed the information quickly.  Marc continued to thrive artistically.

He not only participated in all three Young Masters programs at Continuum. But he also participated in his first non-student professional art exhibition,  ATB's Boys to Men Art Expo IV and sold one of his exhibited pieces at the show. 

Marc continued to grow as a true artist, not afraid to push the boundaries that many adult artists may fear to explore. 

Marc has shown great leadership and inspired his peers, even when the going got tough. Mentoring can be challenging, especially for a young person.  It isn't easy telling your friends that they need to do better. 
But he did it, so they could all grow together.

Marc has won numerous Young Masters awards and scholarships over the three years. 

We are proud to receive word that Marc has been accepted to Watkins College of Art in Nashville.

Here is his note to us :

 I just wanted to let you guys know that I will be going out of state for school attending Watkins College of Art in Nashville on a full scholarship! I can’t begin thank you guys enough for all of the opportunities you have provided me. You’re mentorship has truly shaped me as an artist. I hope I can stay involved with Continuum one way or another. 
Thanks for everything, 

Marc Ludwigsen.

We congratulate you on your next journey. You will always be part of the Continuum Family.

On May 1, 2019 Harold's Coffee Lounge barista, family man & fellow artist Timi Ogundipe was in a devastating motorcycle accident which left him with both of his leg broken. He underwent major surgery that will prevent him  from standing for approximately three month. He just welcomed his new born daughter in to the world in February. 

Please join us in helping Timi and his family until he gets back on his feet. 

Finishing Project Micro-Grant

Congratulations to Caron Bowman and Street Art Revolution for being the of our first Finishing project Micro-grant for their Downtown Mural Project.

We are happy to be another contributing funder to this project alongside SubcultureGroup, West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority, and the West Palm BeachArt & Entertainment District who will be securing the artists fees for this project. We will be providing the funds that will assist in the rental of equipment for the project.

These funds became available thanks to the generous grant from the Mandel Philanthopic Fund of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County Inc

The project should be completed by November 2019.

Name of Project: Downtown Mural Project

Description of Project: This year the project will consist of 3 murals in the downtown West Palm Beach area located at 518 Clematis and 105 South Narcissus.

The first mural will highlight the legacy of Jacqueline Kennedy. I will be painting collaboratively with another artist on the Jacqueline Kennedy mural. Moreover, it will celebrate the historical impact and localities of the Kennedy presidency to Palm Beach County

The second mural "The Jam 2" is a collaborative mural that will pay tribute to 5 iconic musicians that have passed away. Each artist will paint one of the 5 musician portraits. The musicians' portraits being considered for this year's “Jam 2” mural are: Freddie Mercury, Amy Winehouse, Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Phil Lynott, Chris Cornell, and Janis Joplin. These musicians penetrated culture beyond music inspiring artists of all disciplines. (This will be the second mural in this series )

The third mural will be a celebration of Indie culture.
