In collaboration with the artists’ collective En Masse Pour Les Masses, students in the undergraduate course Multi-Disciplinary Approaches to Art and Teaching created a mural during a three hour workshop. The goal of this experiential art making activity was to offer students tools and strategies for to creating an original collaborative mural.
The opportunity to collaborate with En Masse was an invaluable experience for everyone involved. The ability to create such as large mural in the context of a workshop is a potent gentle reminder of the power of collaboration in the art making process.
We would like to thank the En Masse artists Katie Green, Dave Todaro, MC Baldassari, Jason Bolkin, Sebastian Botkin for animating this workshop. More information on their work can be found at http://emplm.org/. We would also like to thank the many participating art education students.
