Marina Lee Sculpture

This was the perfect wall to paint with students. The wall height was never higher than 5'. Working outdoors with students, the number of participants at one time is less than a standard class size, yet the involvement is greater. We had a core group of students that helped each afternoon--their involvement in the project was exceptional. I also enjoyed the student's designs that developed into their own personal symbolism. This type of project, is of course, weather permitting. This is a custom project developed around the scale of the mural and the number of participants.
