The Wall Painting CAS Project consisted of a group of three DP 2’s coupled with a small group of DP 1’s who were able to help with the task, which was a continuation of a Previous DP 2’s task who hadn’t finished. However, this task had to start anew with fresh white paint covering the initial design, and involved three stages in order to complete the project. The first stage being the planning stage required the group of three DP 2’s to communicate and collaborate with Mr Joseph the Art teacher and Ms Jodi our CAS coordinator, in order to create a stencil which would have the correct measurements of the wall and would have the proportional measurements to each fragment of the design. This also required clear communication with some of the MIS Staff in order to obtain the appropriate materials at the correct quantity which we planned out by talking to Mr. Joseph. By courtesy, of Mr Sandeep we were able to get a large amount of materials with high quality.
This lead us to the first part of the Action stage, where we started putting the measurements of the design onto the wall through the use of a ruler, measuring tape, pencils and erasers along with the use of a leveller in order to make sure the longer lines were drawn at the same angle. This was what we found to be the most rigorous step as we needed to make sure the measurements that we put onto the wall were accurate to that of the stencil. This involved a high amount of risk as a wrong measurement that took place on the wall would largely affect the design, thus we also needed to communicate with Ms Jodi in order to take careful steps in being able to make sure that the measurements were correct. Throughout this stage, each of us had been able to easily collaborate with each other and so, worked efficiently with each other which led us to finish putting the measurements in two weeks.
In order to carry out the painting process we labelled each measurement on the wall as well in order to carefully and efficiently carry out the process. By labelling the different parts of the wall with what colour was required, we rarely needed to refer to the stencil and so efficiently carried out the painting process. By this time, we had improved our communication and collaboration skills with each other, and so worked more efficiently as a team over time. After this stage is complete however, we would move onto the last stage where we would review over the painting to see if there’s any errors that can be fixed by painting over using the appropriate colour in order to make it look more refined as the final product.
