First Mural Completed!

December 22, 2009 , , , , , , ,

Alhumdillah! For weeks, the mural painting classes have been hard at work on the first Triple Exposure mural and we can now see the fruit of their efforts in its complete glory.

The kids chose to depict the buildings which are most important to them in their daily lives: their homes, schools, mosques, and, for some, the prisons that hold beloved family members.

The mural is divided as a triptych (the hallway that the mural is painted on is broken up into three parts by a door and electric paneling, thus lending itself to this). The first third of the mural is set on a “sunset” background, the second follows a “nighttime” background, and the last third is set in “daytime/sunrise.”

On December 19, families of our students were invited to the first Triple Exposure mural presentation and photo exhibition at the TYO center in Nablus.  In addition to admiring the excellent painting done by their sons and daughters in the mural painting classes, parents were able to see samples of each photo student’s photography. Many brothers, sisters, and cousins are shared between our mural painting and photography classes — so siblings and relatives had an excellent time admiring each others work, giggling over each others photos, and taking pictures of themselves in front of their presented work!
