Painting Collaboration and Bridges

For the final day of our winter art in the afternoon class, young artists worked together to create a large painting on paper covering the table.
They began sharing colors but working independently on individual areas of the paper.
Some started to meet neighbor's designs and chose to find ways to connect shapes and work together.
This led to painting "bridges" - lines to connect different parts of the painting.

Here, two painters work together to paint a bridge, then (below) the bridge forms a fork to connect to each of their designs.
The lines of bridges and connections added to the design and increased the complexity.
This artist is interested in a particular point of intersection.
Coming back to fill in spaces between the lines and designs.

A detail of the finished mural.
