Local mural artist Sara Snedeker likes to work collaboratively. She has created several local murals using groups of people in her process.

The Shoreline pool mural used art students. The Parkwood street mural used neighbors. The Shoreline Farmers Market mural used market volunteers.

At Saturday's Celebrate Shoreline festival, Sara created a mural using Council of Neighborhood volunteers and random festival-goers.

The mural design features native plants.

The mural's theme, inspired by a session Snedeker held with Council of Neighborhood reps, was native plants.

Paints and brushes were set up on a nearby table

She created the mural design in a poster size version which is set up on an easel. The paints and brushes were ready on a nearby table.

Even one of the Three Little Pigs got involved

Volunteers choose or were assigned a part of the design, given their colors and set to work.

"Some people paint one section. Others really get into it and spend an hour. It's up to them."

This is the first portable mural she has created. It was set up on a board attached to the back of the baseball backstop and can be relocated as needed.

The Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council was in an adjacent area with related interactive projects for younger children. Northwest Native Plant Steward were on hand to share information about restoration projects in Shoreline parks. (see article about one such project on Saturday)
