A Thunderbird School art quest is a co-creative group endeavor with the purpose of accomplishing a worthwhile goal. The quest is not only to produce the finished work itself, but also to see to its subsequent installation in the predetermined venue. The artwork is therefore created with a specific site in mind which helps the team develop a collective vision.
Five steps to victory!

- Step two (2-4 sessions):
Painting individual parts into the group project.
- Step three (one session or omitted for smaller kids – we will do it):
Finishing the painting by filling in, black lining and balancing the overall composition.
