Once we saw our drawing’s final draft all the nerves built up. How were we going to put  the image up on our huge wall?

Well, our teaching artists taught us about gridding ,and now we are learing how to transfer our sketch to the wall.

Ya’ll are probably wondering how we got to our final sketch. We worked really hard, brainstormed and  brought our ideas together. We sketched out what we wished to see and  along  with some imput from one of our sponsors Select Ny, our teaching artists  and came up with our final design, making sure to include our visions with the communities.

Starting this project three weeks ago, we didn’t have a clue what to expect .Who knew so much went into painting a picture on a wall? But its not just a picture, each drawing means something and tells a story; and we knew we had to find these stories in the community.

Hey ya’ll, just throught we should update you on our new team name. We are the Prestigious Painters for Change Worldwide. The new hot shot painters for C.A.W.
