Through our VSA arts program, YIA Mentor Artist Angela Baker is working with students of varied abilities in a Special Day Classroom at Redwood High School to make an Ocean Mural.
In week two, students cut out the sea creatures with adult assistance.
Students also did some free form painting on 12″x18″ sheets of paper. These sheets were then torn and collaged on to a large paper to form the ocean background for the painted sea creatures.
In the coming weeks, students will continue to create the collaborative Ocean Mural, exploring different mediums and techniques. At Youth in Arts, we believe that high quality arts education should be accessible to people of all abilities and we raise money to provide this program to hundreds of students in Special Day Classes every year.
We look forward to seeing the mural when it is complete!
