60th & MacArthur - Day 3

We continued to make progress with the mural today. Jose Juan and Ismael colored in the "State" piece while the rest of the workshop paired up to continue painting in the spaces around the bricks. This is a somewhat tedious but necessary task to make the sky look complete. It is complicated because many of the youth have to overcome their fear of heights working on the ladders. There is nothing to be done expect to climb up and face the challenge. One student spent 20 minutes climbing up and down the ladder before he could begin painting. By the end of today, however, he was painting in the top of the mural with no problem.
