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.


The image above is what the mural looked like January 24, 2002.


This is what it looked like April 8, 2002.


This is what it looked like May 1, 2002.


Here it is finished!.

It was a sensational project for an upper level math class and has brought publicity to our school.
