At first I wasn't too excited about the idea of working with chalk, I wasn't sure how we would be able to make our mural realistic and add in details. Once we got started though, I really enjoyed this project. Chalk turned out to be a ton of fun, especially blending it and being able to layer the colors and experiment with the texture of the brick wall in the background. An unexpected aspect of this project that made it especially fun was that while we were working in the courtyard teachers would come by and comment on our art, often with insightful ideas and perspectives. Being centrally located in the courtyard gave me the opportunity to interact more with others during the course of this project which was really neat.
