This mural is designed by a group of people, who will create the theme and scene. The background is painted first. Then, the mural is made by using pre-drawn and cut-out pieces to be colored, placed and glued in the mural design by participants.

Collage Your Kin
This project entails making a collage of a person in your family, or one of yourself, and learning collage techniques. The photographs in the two collages above were copied and stained to create an old and faded look. Then, a paper backgrounds were glued on to make a theme. The photos were then adhered to the background and the rest of the collages were done with smaller copied photos, and items that were salvaged from "junk" drawers.
