Today we were visited again by a few teens from the teen center! Each group presented their ideas for the mural and got feedback on their concepts. A really successful experience, we now are moving quickly towards being able to produce in depth images which speak to the experience of the Bay Area teen. It was also an enlightening process to look at everyone’s artwork and hear their thoughts on what should go up on the mural and what their message is.

Today we had a great discussion and dialog with the YMCA Teen Center Teen Leaders at our BCC home base! We exchanged ideas about and came up with a survey to gather opinions about the mural content from teens around the Bay Area.
