Painting a Mural
During the 2001 - 2002 school year when I taught at my previous school, we had a large wall in our media center
on which we painted a mural. This was a year-long project.
The first step was to apply a solid ground
color. In this case, we used red.
The next step was to transfer geometric
compositional lines from a scale drawing onto the wall.
This involved proportion and careful measurement.
Drawing and painting whenever we have a free moment.

Here it is finished!.
It was a sensational project for an upper level math class and has brought publicity to our school.
