Earlier I posted that I was making a new mural at work (school), and that I had my Grade 9 students helping me out. It's been a long wait for our paint and materials, but we finally got them on Thursday and we've put on the first coat of primer. YAY!!! My students were so happy that they were able to paint. Now hopefully everything goes according to plan.
The mural is based on the Seven Sacred Teachings once again, but it will be inspired from the NorthWest Coast artforms.
Each colored panel will represent one of the Sacred Seven animals, and I used colors that are common in most tribal cultures. In each colored panel, is a "window" where the corresponding animal design will be placed. It will be a fairly simple looking design, but I didn't want to detract from the complexity of the Northwest Coast forms.
I'll leave you to look at some of the animal designs that I have so far: Buffalo, Eagle, Bear and Beaver. I still have yet to do: Wolf, Turtle and Sabe. I'll post those when I am done them. Enjoy!
