The North East Guidance Center (NEGC) partnered with the Community Arts Partnerships (CAP) office at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) to produce a number of murals at their site. CAP faculty -Joye Opoku Ofei, KT Andresky, and Art Turner worked with local Middle School students to design and fabricate a series of mural panels that have been installed around the North east Guidance Center.
Students will work with professional artist/teacher Lynn Spanke. Ms Spanke has a background in education, painting, drawing, and murals. She will work with students to design and fabricate a series of mural panels painted on plywood panels to be installed in various locations. Mural themes and images will be developed with students and principals at the facility. Panels will be fabricated, painted, and installed to last as an indoor project. Finished murals will have the look and feel of youth art.

Students were put in small groups to interview and shoot photo narratives of one another. They then scan through all the photos shot that day and choose their best work. Dave Chow, Illustration teacher at the College for Creative Studies, also stops by to give a lecture/demo!
