Amado Mural, 2014 Amado Youth Center

I am glad to say that finally after much ado, I have neared completion of this wonderful community mural. I worked with the youth from the Amado youth center to get ideas about what made their community special, then I mad some sketches, we chose one, and this is how it turned out!
No bad!
Ii did most of the mural alone due to scheduling conflicts with school , but last tuesday we had a blast working on it as a group. Kids and adults from all around Green Valley and Amado landed a hand and it was very fun and exciting!
Thanks Amado, and Amy Bass from Compass Behavioral Healthcare for the opportunity as well as the community in Amado and Ed Dunin-Wasowicz.

Kids from Amado, the Santa Rita mountain range and native flora and fauna now inhabit the wall of the Amado Mini Mart at Arrivaca Road Near the Cow Palace, BK's BBQ, and The Infamous Long Horn Grill.

New Mural in Amado Az!! 2014

I'm so glad to say that I am starting another new community mural  in Amado AZ again, it's in the beginning process. Here are three sketches I produced, Indiana is standing in front of the little sketches I painted for them to look at and choose from. The other photo is of the final sketch I came up with after the meeting.

We discussed native species of animals and plants in the area, including their dreams of what Amado could be in the future. They were excited about Amado one day having their own high school, or a foot ball field possibly. Ultimately, every one decided on the native flora and fauna with some local smiling youth in the center, as the youth are the future of any place.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm excited to begin again on this small town community building project that both beautifies, infuses art into the lives of the participating people and is a fun project too!!
If your curious where Amado is, it is 40 mi. so. of Tucson, and about 40 mi. north of the border, population, around 300 people.
