About Us


Our Mission and Vision

Mission Statement 

To Serve The Public by advocating the improvement of communities through the alternative of inspirational arts. 

Vision Statement 

Establishing Unity, Team work, and Identity in global communities through arts 


What We Do

  The STP Foundation mentors and educates both youth and adults of all ages. Our primary programs are focused on youth development, graffiti abatement, gang intervention, and community engagement projects.

 The murals and art projects our organization produces are created by some of California’s historic and most talented artists. These artists take pride in the culture as well as the cause. The STP Foundation is focused on restoring old as well as producing new murals.

 STP teaches techniques and styles for different fonts, characters both realistic and animated using many different artistic tools. This includes, but is not limited to, pencils, pens, markers, brushes, and aerosol paint. We strive to maintain individual identity and preserve the true meaning of urban art while embracing and encouraging all other forms of art. 


Our Story

  The Setting The Pace Foundation is a group of creative and collective artists from different industries. Founded in 1987, STP celebrates its 30th year in 2017. With deep roots in the community, The Setting The Pace Foundation has been involved in a wide range of activities that include murals and community restoration projects while mentoring and educating children and young adults.
