The instructors are Wenceslao Quiroz and Fabian Debora; they are sponsored by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts. Funding for these photographs was provided by the California Arts Council, as part of the Arts in Corrections program.
The exercise for today's class is to design a mural. Students chose the type of mural they wanted—e.g. an exterior rectilinear wall, a domed ceiling, etc.—and then worked in groups of two or three to choose a theme for their piece, to conceptualize the individual graphic/sympolic/narrative elements, and then to sketch out a composition.
At the request of several artists, prints of these images are available at cost; just go to the LARGE image and click on the shopping basket. If the FOTOMOTO site does not open right away, please try again.
