CARPINTERIA, Calif. -

A new downtown Carpinteria mural is starting to appear and the artists are all local kids working on a summer project.

The are being guided by acclaimed artist John Wullbrandt.

It's revealing two waves.  One is a famous image called "The Great Waves Off Kanagawa."  The rest of the mural flows into a wave from Carpinteria that is created entirely by the young artists.  The finished product will have the two side by side, and feature some -still to be revealed- additions.

The Carpinteria Arts Center is coordinating this activity along with classes in photography, water colors, and ceramics.

The programs are also part of the Carpinteria Cares for Youth year round outreach to young people.

The 24-foot long mural will be unveiled Saturday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. following the Rods and Roses festival and Independence Day Parade.
