Prior to the residency:
Kevin connects with the principal and/or art teacher to discuss placement and size of the sculpture. With the support of the art and/or classroom teacher(s), students do drawings of their ideas for the sculpture. Kevin then creates a model, inspired by the students’ drawings, of the mobile and shares it with the students on the first day of...
 
The residency:
Over a five-day period, the students help Kevin measure, cut, sand, and assemble the mobile. It is then taken apart in preparation for painting. The students decide together what colors to use and how those colors will be applied to the mobile. The mobile gets a coat of exterior primer and two coats of exterior latex paint. On the final day, the students participate in the final assembly and in the unveiling of the mobile for the entire school community.
After the residency:
The entire school will enjoy the mobile for years to come. With the outdoor mobile, after several years, new students can take the mobile apart and re-paint it the way they would like to paint it. This adds a new coat of paint and at the same time allows future students to make the mobile their own.
