Let’s Paint a Mural with Marcia Harvey

$135, 8:00am – 12:00pm, Room 4710 + Outdoors

This mural painting camp will beautify our world by creating a wall-sized guide to the flora and fauna of Cuesta College’s local ecosystem. Students will be collaboratively painting some of the common sights and sounds of the area; sycamore leaves, grackles, cottontail rabbits, garter snakes, California poppies, and more!  This will be a very hands-on experience; painting a mural is a fun and gratifying experience, as the ordinary wall is transformed into a pictorial space under our very eyes!

Through our practiced writing and honing of drawing skills students will marry the two to create their own unique blend. May our histories be self-determined!
