This two-hour workshop will teach viewers how to create self-portraits that will become part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. mural at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center.

“In January, we announced the Martin Luther King, Jr. community mural project. While we had initial community painting events, the pandemic made it impossible to continue them,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin. “This virtual workshop will allow people to continue to be part of the mural in a safe way.”
 

“This mural reflects our community, (quite literally as the background will be made up of over 700 self-portraits). The virtual workshop will allow participants to paint these self-portraits at home with step-by-step guidance,” said Jeff Pierson, Director of the City’s Office of Public Art.
