Mural Painting - Progress Photos 2

Another weekend of painting has come by, it's been 4 sessions so far.

Prior to the beginning of the Alumni coming in to work on the painting Lil had some of her current students to help clean the wall and prep it with primer. Kevin also came in and did the grid on the wall. The original drawing was created by Justin, and Shannon created the colour scheme in photoshop for us to follow.

The Concept
A celebration of Henry Wise Wood (HWW)'s 50th Anniversary. A place where Scholars, Artists and Athletes emerge. We have the image of Mr. Henry Wise wood on the left, big letters of HWW, will have 50 years written next and imagery of a Warrior helmet. The look is urban, contemporary, graffiti inspired.

Who's doing what sections?
Currently Shannon is working on the background of the blue sky. MJ is working on the first H (academics), Justin is working on the first W (arts), I'm working on the second W (athletics), and Kevin is working on the Warrior head to the right.

This weekend (feb 19 and 20) the school isn't open for us to come in, so it is nice to have a bit of a break from painting. All of us work fulltime too, so the extra volunteer hours keep us quite busy. Stay tuned for the next update!
