For our last project of the 15/16 school year, we decided to create some interactive murals for the courtyard. What's an interactive mural you ask? Well simply put, its a mural, created in chalk, that leaves out the person. This way the person can step into the art and become one with the art. Then, the person who takes a photo really creates the art. The photo becomes the art, the photographer becomes the artist.. it's mind bowing, I know.
We started by planning out ideas on printed photographs of the courtyard wall. This helped the students decide how big things should be and how thing will be placed on the space on the wall. Today, we started with simple outlines. We want to make sure the idea will look how we want it to look before we start the laborious task of coloring.
OK hopefully it won't rain... ever
