In June of 2010 University City High School’s Art Tech Academy, granted me an Artist Residency to co- create a mural with the graduating seniors. The idea was to first teach the students some basic fundamentals of spray painting and how to create a mural using Parachute Cloth. Parachute Cloth is a technique and process that is used in mural making in which artists can create a mural in studio and then apply it onto a desired surface.
The opportunity to work with various high schools in the past has resulted in me being the designer and the students happily filling in areas. However this talented group of individuals was different, they were truly creative thinkers and painters who could thoroughly express and visualize their ideas, which was motivating. During our first meeting I had a chance to listen to each students creative process and view their works, “after this observation I told them they were in trouble, because now I had high expectations of them undertaking this mural project. “
With a time frame of about 30 total hours, during the last few months of school while preparing for finals and graduation these students pulled together to create an energetic mural that reflects the essence of their existence… “Technology Meets Nature.”
