Resources

Here is a downloadable PDF (high resolution) of the Mural/Art Workshop Handbook (22.1 mb) I created of the art-warmups, games, activities, tips and pitfalls/how to avoid them, an art workshop sample curriculum, a mural workshop sample curriculum, budgeting, documentation, and more. And here it is in low-resolution (for slow internet connections)! (1.8 mb)  Let me know if you have any feedback.  These versions were updated September 2011.

Big thanks to Da Chang, Bounmi, Barbara, Mark, Vongdala, Tounmi, Phadsada, Bounsong, Bounxeuy, Tor, Viengmany, Hua Lor, Bouaphone, Abby, Andy, Tabea, Mr. Khammanh, Shannon Dorsey, Sombath Somphone, Chantalangsy, Kolaka, Ding, Dtai, my mom, Jess, and of course Arnouson, Mailawr, Daeng, Jalaw, Yakguh, Yangkuh, Huagku, Ya Vue, Sipai, Sawnaly, Phet, Xue Yee, Sompan, and the students at Sisatannak Secondary School and Don Noune Secondary School in Vientiane.  And to Precita Eyes (Missy, Brenda, Susan), Ellie/Mollie/Jess/Bri, Colleen, Khiang and Evan Bissell for inspiration/guidance.
