mural of words and images

I created a paneled mural of words and images for the  Phoenix Office of Arts and Cultures’ artSpace program. This mural was requested to provide a small bite of the activities that the POAC artSpace program offers. It will live at the Arizona Department of Education office as they are the funders of the artSpace program. POAC artSpace provides kids access to the Arts in an after-school setting. I worked with a gardening and growing theme using trees, flowers, butterflies, a wheelbarrow and seed packets. The lines of the tree trunk and branches as well as the flower stems are made by using words from poetry written by students participating in the artSpace programs.  The leaves and butterflies are created out of photos of kids in the program and images of their artwork.
