Public Library - This Week in Abstractions!

January 9, 2013: Bubble Wrap Mural-

You will get to be a human paintbrush during this interactive art project. We will be wrapping willing participants’ torsos in bubble wrap (over a sheet to protect your clothes from paint splatter). We will then paint the bubble wrap in several different colors. Once painted, the bubble wrapped teens will roll on a pre-prepared sheet fastened to the floor. The sheet will have a pattern taped off with masking tape. When the paint dries we will pull off the tape to reveal the pattern.

Girls-wear your hair up and/or bring a hat to protect from splatter. We will have some extras but feel free to bring something to protect your hair.

Project Rules:
Remember, safety comes first. One human paintbrush on the canvas at a time. We are making art, not playing bumper bubble wrap.

**You do not have to be bubble wrapped if you are not comfortable being wrapped up. We will need help wrapping/unwrapping and painting. This is a group project.
