MSL NAHS: DC SPCA Mural

  • MSL NAHS
    Project: DC SPCA Mural
     
    Theme: Animals / Pets
    Mill Street Loft's NAHS members including me have worked hard on this mural and have completed this within a month. This was a challenging piece since it was my first time working on a mural, however, it was very enjoying and rewarding to be part of this whole art making process. 
    On Tuesdays we would work for 2-3 hours and on Saturdays we worked from 9,10am to about 5pm.
