When Lisa goes to the arts camp Expressions, she meets Kurt Hardwick and Ethan, the two counsellors of the camp. Lisa falls in love with the camp and, after going home, goes to Sprooklyn to find Kurt and Ethan. She finds out that they lied about how great Sprooklyn was and wants to go home. Kurt and Ethan paint a mural of Lisa before she leaves. He, and Ethan, were last seen on top of the building with the mural after, a minute earlier, they were seen outside their flat, 652 8th Avenue. They said that they had magical arty powers and they could fly too.
