Finishing up the mural and on to the next project

I finished the mural in the main office.  I am quite happy with the way it turned out.  The response from the kids is what makes it really worth it.  It is quite exciting to know as an artist I was able to positively contribute to a school and change the area just by adding colors to a white surface.  The mural is filled with symbols for the kids, shapes and subjects.  I tried my best to include as much as I could.  I spent a lot of time in the main office and I created great relationships with the staff.  When a parent would come in for a question, I’d sometime be able to answer it for them.   For today, I have started working on the pillars outside, painting inspiring words on each one.  There are 13 pillars and we have decided to put the words on both sides of the pillars so no matter which way you are coming from you will be able to see it.  The weather seems questionable today, looks like it might rain but I will do as much as I can.  School starts the 15th for the little ones.  I wish I could be a fly on the wall to see their reactions.   I will have pictures uploaded of the pillars when I get a little farther in the project.  Also, I will take a picture today and share of the whole mural in the main office.

  1. Looks great! Make sure you take plenty of pictures, including close up of several details. It is going to be important to document this work well for your portfolio. Remember, most people will not be able to go visit this mural, so your photos will be an important way convey the work to others. If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask some one with more experience to help you.

    1. Yes! I have taken lots of pictures since the very beginning. It is nice to look back at as well and see the progress and finish product. Thank you Nathan for your words.
