This past week, we hosted 50 students from Lord Byng Secondary School. The students all took part in our tour of Downtown Manhattan and followed it up with a Mural painting and T-shirt design experience. It was a team effort with four local artists each taking a group of the kids.
As part of the experience @damien_mitchell led a mural painting project entitled “Welcome to the Jungle”. It was a great piece with bookend characters and 3d text. We taught the kids the different tips and painting techniques and everyone had a chance to participate in the project.

While the mural was being painted, @leaf_8k was running kids through the make your own t-shirt activity. It was a great way for kids to have a take home from their trip. We provided different stencils and paint markers for everyone. Each kid was able to customize their shirt from a fried egg to a portrait of Yoko Ono.
