Livermore Valley Charter Preparatory High School (LVCP) students in Justin Guerra's Urban Art class turned a downtown gallery space into an expression of urban art on Thurs., January 12. The students filled the Bothwell Downtown Art Studio, located at 62 L. Street, with provocative pieces on media-driven eating disorders, excessive taxes, homelessness, treatment of disabled students, child soldiers, gay rights, simplicity, and domestic violence, among other themes.

The show was the culmination of a two-month unit on urban art, in which students studied famous urban artists like Shepard Fairey and Banksy, researched social justice issues, developed themes, and created two acrylic paintings on canvas expressing those themes. They also watched the 2010 documentary "Exit through the Gift Shop," which explores the work of Fairey, Banksy, and other urban artists.
