This week Dorian brought in a book of paint samples and a small-scale copy of the design for the first layer of the first wall for each student and had them choose and then execute a color scheme with markers. We also came up with some more ideas for the second wall's design. The students are considering a repetitive design of figures wearing protest signs linking arms; we've discussed a couple different options for the text and the presentation, including making the protest signs out of cardboard so they are more realistic and come out from the wall slightly, extending the design onto the floor, and pulling quotes for the text on each of the signs from famous African-American poets and/or from songs by students of Walter Dyett.
