About the Project
This is McNett’s second Viking ship build in the city and his first project with Mural Arts. When he visited the class we made papier-mâché helmets and shields.
McNett enjoys working with kids. “There’s no filter on their thinking yet.” He explained. “No one’s told them that those colors don’t go together or you can’t cross those two animals together.”
When done, McNett will brought the class into his mythical Wolfbat tribe. The finished ship was displayed at the Mural Arts Education Annual Exhibition at the Crane Arts building and was part of 2016 Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby.
