Day 2 at the Market building after priming the surface the students started drawing the design.  

The design was created by a group of students and the details were filled in by votes from all 18 students working on the marketing mural – e.g. what are the favorite food you wish to see in the market.  We then went out to the market and I taught the student the basics of taking a photograph.  The student’s worked in groups to find willing models in the market and pose and take photos of them according to the design. Mostly the market women didn’t want to be bothered, but some took time out and helped us.  When we started drawing them on the wall, the women finally understood the purpose of the photographs.  I loved seeing the most central woman in the mural point out the developing drawing of herself to her friends!
