We have a new partnership with the Florida Theatre! This partnership means that soon the Alden Road art class will have a public mural on display in downtown Jacksonville! This mural will consist of 5 panels measuring 8 feet tall by 4 feet wide each (equaling a total of 20 feet wide and 8 feet tall!)…quite the undertaking!
Here are a few pictures of the first days of this massive project!
Some of our young artists adding a coat of primer to one of our panels:
While we primed the panels, we also did a bit of studying Pop Art and the works of Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Here are a few of the images we examined and the some pieces inspired by the studies…
Now how might we use these images in our mural???
We are working on transforming our art students into Keith Haring figures to create the audience for the scene taking place in our mural!!
Here’s a sneak peek at our first panel…painting starts tomorrow!
Check back with us for more updates!
