The Mural is finished! Jeremiah put the final coat of sealer on it this morning.

We are nearly finished with all the mural pieces and it is now time to ready the surface of the wall. First the students are going to prime the wall with 2 coats of kilz primer. We will let this dry, then start applying each individual mural piece.
Things are getting really colorful around the art room as the mural progresses. Students are finishing their second piece and we are now finding the right estrangement to hang on the wall. Jeremiah is experimenting with possible combinations out in the hallway. The students are getting very anxious to see their mural on the wall. We will begin preparing the brick wall after Easter break.

We are finally ready to begin our painting on the mural. Jeremiah started introducing the different colors to the students. We ordered both the standard colors (red, yellow, blue, orange, green and violet) and neon and glow-in-the-dark colors; to add some dimension to the color palette. Students are using their sketches to create their final drawings on the Pellon.

All the cut-up Pellon or better known as our mural, all in one handful!
Jeremiah is mixing the paint and getting it ready to apply to the mural pieces.
The neon colors!
Jill is charging the glow-in-the-dark blue to test it out.
