Sign Painting with Mike

Mike's next project is painting signs with original words by the students. After describing the pencil guides for each letter like the "skeleton of the body", Mike shows Lisette how to gracefully stroke the brush in a downward motion for each letter, and then to add contrasting shadow lines to make the letters stand out. A little fluorescent spray paint underneath kicks it up a bit more. Let's see what sayings the rest of the groups come up with. We're already thinking about our end of year exhibition.

Signs are everywhere in cities, advertising stores and properties. We've done a lot of our own research on signs, and now we have the chance to make our own.
