“I never considered myself a good drawer. At first I didn’t want anyone to see what I was doing, but then one week…I felt I was able to capture the feeling on the face of a mother crying at the window looking at her son with a gun. And it made me feel like I might be good at stuff that I tell myself I’m not good at.” – Mural Participant

These workshops engage the participants in discussions and group work to address ideas and feelings in order to identify mural themes.

The sketches developed during these workshops will reflect these discussions and will, in turn, be reflected in the final mural design.

The workshops also include an educational component that will address mural history, color theory, painting, and mural grid techniques.

Listen to mural participant Safirah Rabb talk about the weekly design workshops.
