While Key West’s favorite artist Rick Worth recovers from health issues, his longtime friend and co-muralist Jack McDonald steps in as drill sergeant. Leave each class with a finished painting, and appreciation for talents you didn’t know you had.

As a visual artist and proud Key West native, the island landscape has always been Jack McDonald’s muse. He’s also had the pleasure of working with some of the local greats like Rick Worth and John Martini. Primarily interested in street art, Jack is influenced by local color as well as art in public places. He is driven to stretch the boundaries of “street art,” with the hope to raise awareness and establish it as a more legitimate art form. (And, of course, while having a bit of fun!) Through the use of whimsical illustrations, brights colors and shapes, his desire is to have a positive influence on the Key West art scene, while adding an element of familiarity, exploration, and discovery.
