Facilitate the creation of at least one - possibly 2 or 3 acrylic paintings that are created completely collaboratively

Hopes & Dreams
The hope is that a few really interesting abstract paintings will emerge from the camp experience that are truly the work of many - and not one single artist. The participants will take part in a 'decentralized' art making experience and at the end of camp, the pieces can be bid on by art collectors who might want to take them home!

Anyone can participate in this! No one needs to be an *artist*, or experienced at making art. With collaborative art, not ONE person puts their name on any piece, nor 'leads' the art creation. That being said, there is a ‘facilitator’ who will organize some key participants and a process for making the art - and this helps make sure the pieces don't devolve into a muddy mess. Towards the end of camp, the key participants will regroup to decide together how to constructively finish the paintings. The facilitator will then help to make sure there is a balance of everyone's ideas in the piece and that they do not end up the work of just one overwhelmingly 'good' painter.

Why Participate
Making collaborative art is fun! Participants get to experience making abstract art with curiosity and openness and learn from each other. Constructive disagreement is openly encouraged throughout the process and this leads to a rich and stimulating learning experience, and (usually) some beautiful work is created that EVERYONE can be proud of!

Session Rundown
A lightning talk at the beginning of camp will introduce the project and the key participants can sign up with Margaret Warren, who will be facilitating the process. All paintings will be done with acrylic paint and if people bring collage materials, the group might agree to also collage other other materials into the works as well.

The key participants (probably no more than 6-10) will need to be at an initial 1-3 hour session to get the painting started (probably 1 hour minimum - but then can keep painting as long as they want!) - after that, any camp attendee can paint on the works throughout the camp. Key participants will monitor the works during camp (to keep them from turning into mud), and then the key participants will meet for one final painting session towards the end of camp to 'finish' the pieces.
