Mural - Chapter three

This seventh grader nailed color mixing

Seventh grader learning  how to apply paint "wet on wet"

It's a surprise! This is what you see when we're not painting.

Mural painting at Lake Center is as close to a team sport as we come.  Experienced older kids work alongside the younger kids, forging a healthy link between different grade levels.  If I can start a motivated student painting in junior high, by the time they're seniors in high school with five or six murals under their belts, they know how to make their paint brushes sing.  

Unfortunately, since I forgot to take a picture before we replaced the cover this week, I'll have to post the results of session three next time alongside session four.
