The AmeriCorps volunteers working in Federal Way, a group of 50 in total, collaborated with Advancing Leadership of Federal Way and Bob as mentor for completion of this mural project.  They  participated in the areas of design concept, public relations, materials, community involvement, and the painting process.  Above left the painting. Right the break.  The group completed the first half of the mural in 2 weeks.  Bob mentored them in painting techniques, painting,  keeping the mural as true to their art as possible.

Hanging the mural>

 

Mural completed, the canvas framing (fabricated wall) on which the mural is fastened was built on site two days before the Festival dedicating the mural to the community of Federal Way.  Next, the mural was hung and covered until the festival.

<Unveiling the mural at Festival

Students designed a smaller mural for the community to paint>

At this Community Festival the mural was unveiled to the public.  Above right, students designed a mini mural that represented the larger one again using their art.  AmeriCorps students were responsible for helping others to paint this mural.  It was a great experience, working with such wonderful people.
