Yesterday the Canvas Art program crew went out to visit Baan Piranan, resident home for children with Cerebral Palsy.
The objective of the workshop was to work with the 3 boys at the home painting and stenciling onto lightweight wooden leaf shapes. These hand-painted leaves will be used to become the focal element of a mural created by us volunteers, specifically for uplifting the space inside Baan Piranan.
We decided to create the mural onto a large canvas - with two trees bordering the right and left sides of the canvas. The boys' leaves were then glued onto the tree tops to create the canopy. Today we will outline and seal the artwork, photograph it, and collage some of photographs of the boys in the section between the trees. The photograph we take, after the mural is sealed, will be used to form the basis of a vinyl printed sign for the front entrance of the centre.
We'll be sure to keep y'all up to date with pics of the finished product. Chow!
