COMMUNITY SEALIFE MURAL PROJECT 2022
Join Stacey Sterling Ocean Painter for a Sea life painting exploration! She will be setting up a 4’ x 8’ mural on the corner of California and Oregon St. during the West Seattle Summer Festival, taking place on Friday 7/15, and Saturday 7/16. She is looking for folks to help paint this amazing piece that, when finished, will be permanently on display in the West Seattle Junction for all to see. Everyone is welcome to take part- you do not need any artistic experience as she will be guiding the way, and if you do have experience or are eager to learn something new, this is for you, too.
Stacey encourages parents to come with their little ones. She will set you up with paints and brushes and you can do this fun activity together.
The painting will be about the intertidal zone of the Pacific Northwest. With that being said, not only will this be a fun painting project, but a great learning experience to find out about some of the incredible beauty in the waters around West Seattle. Our goal is to finish this piece in 2 days! With such a large working space there is room for everyone who is interested.
There are two sea-life murals in Mural Alley that were completed during West Seattle Summer Festivals 2018 and 2019 when 200 community members participated in each piece. Please stop by Stacey’s booth on Friday or Saturday to sign up for a time to paint.
