Matilda Cleveland Mural with Redwood Day School

Photos by Jen Ammenti and Redwood Day Students

Redwood Day School students have been volunteering in the Garden at the Matilda Cleveland Center throughout the year. The students decided that they wanted to contribute a mural to the site as well. So on Friday, June 3, the group meet up with CRP to create a mural in 2 hrs. The students had never spray painted before but they were quick to pick up the basics. We started by blending colors to create a sunset. Then we utilized a technique taught by Lavie Raven of the University of Hip-Hop of tracing the students on the wall and drawing in silhouettes. Finally we drew in the words "Matilda Cleveland" at the center and added some plant life at the bottom. Everyone was amazed by how quickly the mural was produced and happy with the results.
