BCAL: What are you doing at BCAL?

Clark Stoeckley: I’m painting murals, whatever BCAL needs me to paint, i’ll paint. The students and I will work together designing and painting murals. The ideas start as paper designs that we turn into full scale wall works (see example below).

BCAL: How long will you be here?

CS: Right now, I plan to be here until the end of the year to start. Next year we plan to do more murals throughout the BCAL space.

 

BCAL: Why are you here and not a museum or gallery?

CS: I go to school at Brooklyn College, I live in the neighborhood and more importantly, I love working with kids. I travel the country teaching kids how-to create murals where they live.

 

BCAL: Can you tell us more about your teaching technique?

CS: Mostly, I’ve been teaching one day classes with schools and colleges for sometime. Students can use these skills learning graphic design. The better the design, the better its sells. We’ll work on projects from logos to graphc design.

 

During the mural project, Clark worked with BCAL students Shiann and Hevita.
