This process-based workshop brings students out of the classroom and on to the playground to create a free form, one of a kind, abstract mural for your school. Teaching artist, Paige Ahlenius, helps students produce a piece of art that can be displayed in your school! The mural will be sprayed with protective polyurethane and rigged for hanging.
