Design or finish a mural and stay for free. We have an almost completed mural on the second floor hallway. Our current colaborative mural has nine different artists each completing an element of the design, using their own individual style.... making, at the end, a colaborative effort of ten artists. We are now looking for an empty wall to start the next project. See http://www.casahamaca.com/activities/mural.htm
