YMCA Mural

It's been a long time in the making, but we're finally just about ready to get started painting over at the West Broad YMCA. 

Here's a nice little article our pal Lauren Flotte did up for us over at Connect.

This is the final design, along with some of the original pieces created by the kids. Our process was to do workshops with the kids over a series of weeks and have them create works inspired by their time at the YMCA. After we had stacks of drawings- we photocopied them, cut out various elements, and collectively collaged them onto a wall in the cafeteria that had been mapped out to the scale of the wall. They got to talk about themes within the mural and how and why to group things or allow space. They're all pretty excited about it, as are we; hope you feel the same way. Enjoy!
